1
tablespoon sugar
1

cup whipping (heavy) cream
  1. Cook rhubarb, 1 cup sugar and the orange juice in 2-quart saucepan over medium heat 15 to 17 minutes, stirring occasionally, until rhubarb is very tender and mixture is thick and syrupy. Cool 25 minutes or until room temperature. Fold in strawberries.

How-To
Grate the orange peel from the whole orange before cutting it and squeezing out the juice. Be careful not to grate into the white part, or pith, because it's bitter.
Did You Know...
Medium-size rhubarb stalks are generally more tender than large ones, which may be stringy. The deeper the red, the more flavorful the rhubarb stalks are likely to be.
