Because of its high acid content, rhubarb needs lots of sugar to sweet it and is often combined with sweeter fruits, like strawberries and apples.

1/2 cup sugar, or more to taste

1 teaspoon fresh orange zest

2 cups cut (1/2-inch pieces) fresh rhubarb

2 cups cut (into quarters) fresh strawberries

Combine orange juice, sugar and orange zest in medium saucepan and bring a boil. Reduce heat, add rhubarb and cover, simmering for 12 minutes, or until rhubarb is tender; stir once or twice while rhubarb is cooking.

Add strawberries, stir gently, and simmer for 10 minutes more. Add more sugar, to taste. Serve warm, or cold, as a sauce for ice cream, biscuits, scones, angel food cake and more. Keep refrigerated for up to 1 week, or freeze.

Makes 3 cups sauce.
