Fruity Rhubarb Sauce

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.


5 cups

My husband and I came up with these open-faced sandwiches when we didn't have much in the refrigerator. They've been a favorite ever since, particularly when we need a quick dinner. You can easily double the recipe when company drops by.


  • 4 cups chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 can (8 ounces) unsweetened crushed pineapple, undrained
  • 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
  • Vanilla ice cream


  1. In a large saucepan, combine the rhubarb, raisins, sugar and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 20-22 minutes or until rhubarb is tender. Remove from the heat. Fold in pineapple and strawberries. Serve warm or chilled over ice cream.
