How exciting to see the rhubarb sprouting...after today's rain and tomorrow's predicted sunshine, the "pie plant" should really grow!
This particular rhubarb plant is a "start" from my Dad and Uncle Alfred's that grew alongside the barn...it seemed to me that many people would stop by in the spring and get an armload to make a pie or whatever. There was never a charge, just help yourself was the motto! I love rhubarb sauce on ice cream!!!
There really isn't a recipe for the sauce...
Just gather a dozen stalks or so, wash & slice in 1/2" pieces
Place in a large saucepan with a small amount of water and bring to a boil and then simmer until "done"
Sweeten to taste and enjoy by itself or with toast, on a biscuit, or good vanilla ice cream!
