There are so many ways to use this Rhubarb Sauce! From meats and poultry to desserts, this sauce is pure awesome sauce. If you're unfamiliar with rhubarb, it varies in sweetness. So make sure to add sugar to taste in our Rhubarb Sauce recipe. Consider adding ground cinnamon–we think it adds a nice layer of flavor to the Rhubarb Sauce.
