  • 2 cups Rhubarb sliced into 1 inch pieces
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon lemon juice


  • Combine the rhubarb, water and sugar in a small pot. Heat over medium heat. The sugar will melt and the rhubarb will start to get soft. 
  • Once the water comes to a low boil and the rhubarb is soft when you press a spoon into, remove from the heat and mix in the lemon juice. 
  • Use your emulsion blender to blend the sauce into a uniform texture. Alternatively you can transfer the sauce into a blender and blend it all together. Let cool before serving! 



RECIPE TIP: You can freeze rhubarb sauce. Make sure whatever container you use to freeze the sauce in has a little extra space for the sauce to expand.
