Homemade Rhubarb Sauce | Real Food RN

It’s that time of year again when the rhubarb is coming in like crazy! We have a ton and I love to make it into sauce and freeze it. Then I can enjoy warm rhubarb sauce all year round. It goes great with cottage cheese and yogurt, or just by itself with some honey and cinnamon. Here is how I make it.

Homemade Rhubarb Sauce

You will need:


  • cut the pink ends and leaves off the rhubarb stalks
  • dice the rhubarb into 1″ pieces and put into large pot
  • add 1/3 cup  water to the bottom of the pan
  • cook over medium heat with the cover on the pot
  • watch closely so it doesn’t scortch, stir often
  • once it starts to really cook, it will be done in 10-15 minutes
  • when it becomes sauce, remove from heat and allow to cool a bit before adding the honey (to preserve its benefits)
  • and add honey and cinnamon to taste
  • allow to cool and put into jars, leaving 1″ head-room to allow for expansion if you plan to freeze it
  • keeps up to one week in fridge, or indefinitely in the freezer
