I had no suitable liquid (such as orange juice) in the fridge for making my rhubarb sauce so I used semi sweet red wine. The result was a sweet & tart sauce that was awesome & I will NEVER use orange juice again!


  1. Wash rhubarb& cut into 1/2 inch pieces.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a heavy pot& bring to a boil.
  3. Lower heat& simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 30 minutes or to desired consistency.
  4. Let the sauce cool slightly& serve over ice cream.

Had some leftover rhubarb from making pie so downsized this recipe to make a small jar. Had a taste before putting it in the jar and it was delicious. Looking forward to putting it over ice cream in the near future.

I was anticipating making this sauce long before the lush shoots appeared this spring. I was not disappointed! While the family prefer the simply made sauce I found this spiked version absolutely delicious and will definitely make it again. Thanks Country Lady.
