Wonderful!! I added 1 teaspoon cinnamon and nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon cloves and 1 teaspoon lemon juice. I cooked 2 cups strawberries with 4 cups rhubarb. I used 1 1/2 cups sugar and no water. I also used 6 Tablespoons tapioca. I cooked it in the microwave, covered, stirring every 3 minutes til tapioca was cooked. Will for sure make this again!!

Excellent recipe! I am always looking for new rhubarb recipes but I made some changes since I didn't have any strawberries. I substituted a cup of frozen blueberries and cut the water back to a half a cup. My husband and daughter loved it. This is a definite make-again dessert!

Absolutely Awesome!!!! I love the strawberry- rhubarb combination and this was my favorite dessert my grandmom made just for me as a child! I used frozen rhubarb and put all ingredients(except the strawberries) in the microwave for about 15 minutes stopping it 2-3 times to check and stir.<br/>I let it cool a bit then added strawberries. Tasted yummy! Then added raspberries; more yummy. Decided to throw in blueberries but they didn't soften so I put the hole bowl back into the microwave for 2 minutes; blueberries softened just right and everything melded together. Decided to put in 1/2 lemon that was in fridge and few shakes of cinnamonf. I guess I invented a 4 fruit pudding! Thanks!!!
