  • 2 cups rhubarb 8-9 ounces, cut in 1/2 inch pieces
  • 4 ounces large strawberries around 4-5, hulled and quartered
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  1. In a medium pot, combine all ingredients. Stir to dissolve sugar.
  2. Put over medium high heat until the mixture begins to boil.
  3. Turn heat down so mixture continues at a low simmer, and cook for 7-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. You will know the mixture is ready when the rhubarb is soft and mashable.
  5. Filter mixture through a strainer into a serving container, pressing the rhubarb and strawberry chunks to extract their liquid.
  6. That's it!

Recipe Notes

Change it Up:

For a slightly thicker sauce/glaze, mix together 1 tablespoon cornstarch and 1 tablespoon water to form a runny cornstarch paste.
After straining the sauce, return sauce to pan, add cornstarch mixture, and bring to a low boil for approximately 3 minutes, stirring frequently.
