Rhubarb Sauce
Rinse the rhubarb and cut off any brown or discolored spots.  Chop the stalks into 1 inch lengths and place into a sauce pan.  Add just 1” of water.
We recommend that you add a sweet ingredient at this time: either a handful of strawberries or a diced apple.  If you don’t have a fruit handy, you can add a couple of tablespoons of honey.
Simmer the rhubarb and its sweet friend at a low boil.  The stalk chunks will soften and start to resemble a sauce.  We allow the sauce to cool before serving as a side dish or snack.
