Homemade apple sauce is one of autumn’s best treats. But in the springtime, Strawberries and Rhubarb are where it’s at! This easy recipe makes a delicious dessert on its own, but also makes a decadent, tangy topping for vanilla bean ice cream or homemade shortbread biscuits.
¼ cup water
1 LB fresh rhubarb stalks, trimmed into 2-inch pieces
1 LB fresh strawberries, sliced
¼ cup maple syrup
½ tsp cinnamon or garam masala
In a medium saucepan, heat all ingredients, stirring occasionally. Cook uncovered until rhubarb and strawberries are completely broken down and form a sauce. Serve warm or chill in the refrigerator to enjoy later!
