    Great recipe! My garden produced an overabundance of rhubarb this year. Usually, I make strawberry rhubarb pie and strawberry rhubarb jam, but I had an angel food cake on hand and decided on the rhubarb sauce. After reading the reviews, I decided to use a cup of bing cherries I also had on hand and a dash of red food coloring; I also added a bit of vanilla extract. My mother used to make Rhubarb Sauce every summer, and it brought back memories. I'm going to freeze the extra sauce for use throughout the year.  -  05 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Because of the previous reviewers' suggestion, I also put a squirt of vanilla in at the end. In addition, I used 1/3 cup brown sugar instead of the white, and added a dash of cinnamon. I also have made this substituting a cup of frozen cranberries for a cup of the rhubarb. Yummmm!!!!!  -  25 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Yummy! Can be made with less butter and sugar for the health-concious Also don't worry too much about cutting the rhubarb - it will just boil down  -  20 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
