Rhubarb Sauce

I love Rhubarb anything! I have been eating Rhubarb since I was a kid. I made this recipe to put on my English muffins. It is like eating a tart applesauce and I even eat it right out of the bowl. Although Rhubarb is officially a vegetable, a lot of people consider it a fruit. This is probably due to the fact that fruit is often mixed with the Rhubarb in most recipes. This takes only minutes to make. I pick my fresh rhubarb from our garden and freeze it in 1/2″ pieces. When I take it out of the freezer, I thaw the Rhubarb and drain it in a strainer. If you are using fresh Rhubarb, you will not need to strain it but it may take a little longer to cook down.
