An easy to make rhubarb sauce.
  • 1 pound trimmed rhubarb cut into 1½ inch pieces
  • ½ cup sugar
  • Grated zest of orange or lemon
  • Honey if needed
  1. Centre rack in the oven and preheat to 400 degrees F.
  2. Toss the rhubarb with the sugar and zest in a baking pan that will hold them comfortably. A Pyrex pie plate is perfect.
  3. Let the mix rest for 5 minutes or just long enough for a little syrup to start to develop.
  4. Cover the pan with foil and roast the rhubarb for about 15 minutes. Check and if the sugar isn't almost completely melted, stir, re-cover the pan with the foil and roast for a few minutes more.
  5. Once the sugar is melted, remove the foil and roast for another 5 minutes, or until the syrup is bubbling.Remove the pan from the oven and let the rhubarb cool just enough for you to taste it. If you don't think the mix is sweet enough, add a little honey.
