Not a bad idea, Taxy.

What about roasting some of the rhubarb? Rhubarb is juiciest after rain, so picking it a few days where you haven't had any rain for a few days might result in less water in the rhubarb. Maybe wait until closer to the end of the season when the weather has been hotter and drier.

It's more a texture thing. Some good ideas, guys, thanks. I'm a purist when it comes to rhubarb, no strawberries please.

I have plenty more to experiment with, don't like seeing the neighbor's patch go to waste. And my own little rhubarb patch is looking pretty good now too.

Not sure if I mentioned this before in another thread, I'm old and tend to repeat myself.

You can reduce the amount of sugar needed to sweeten rhubarb by about 1/2 if you add a little baking soda to the sugar before mixing it into the rhubarb. It doesn't take much baking soda, about 1/4 t for every 4 cups of diced rhubarb.

Cool! Thanks AB, will give it a shot. The current sauce was sugared to taste, I probably used half as much as what the recipes I've looked at state.

This is a recipe I use.

5 cups rhubarb
4 cups sugar (or to taste)
1 - 3oz package strawberry jello

Cut up rhubarb in small pieces and put in a large bowl. Add sugar and let stand on the counter overnight. (stir occ.). In the morning put in a pan and bring to a boil and boil for 10 minutes. Add jello. Stir until dissolved. Put in jars and keep in the refrigerator. Keeps for weeks.
