Rhubarb sauce:

  • 1 pound fresh rhubarb cut into 1-inch pieces
  • cup scant 1/3 granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons strawberry jam or preserves
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 quart ice cream or frozen yogurt I like vanilla, coconut or strawberry


For the rhubarb sauce:

  • In a medium saucepan, combine the rhubarb and sugar. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low. Cook partially covered, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 10 minutes. 
  • Remove from the heat and stir in strawberry jam and cinnamon. Allow to cool to room temperature and then serve or refrigerate.
