Oh man, this recipe is amazing and is nothing like the rhubarb sauce I grew up with. There is so much added flavor with the OJ and vanilla extract. Any combination of berries would work with this "base" recipe. Thanks so much for sharing!

I was looking for a recipe for just rhubarb sauce but was unimpressed with the ones on this site. I used this recipe but used 4 cups rhubarb and no strawberries. Still used the 2/3 cups sugar, maybe a little more because of the extra tartness, and I didn't have plain orange juice so I used one of my kids fruit & veggie raspberry orange drinking boxes. It tasted AMAZING and snuck a few more nutrients in there too! I also blended mine after it was cooked and cooled because we like a smoother sauce. In my opinion the juice and the vanilla make this sauce as good as it is! Don't use those recipes that are just fruit and sugar. AWESOME recipe!!

This sauce is delicious and easy to make. I used frozen rhubarb because there was no fresh available yet and thus had to cook it a little longer. Mashed it with a potato masher and it was great. I didn't use any food colouring and it still looked beautiful in my pink depression glass pitcher and on the vanilla ice cream. Thanks!
