This “fruit sauce” made with fresh or frozen whole fruits or slices would come as a surprisingly savory dessert. Just top it with ice cream, yogurt, or other delights, and that would give you an excellent dessert!



2 c. rhubarb (sliced about an inch thick)

1 c. apple (cubed and peeled)

1 cinnamon stick

1 tsp. orange rind (grated)

1/4 c. fresh orange juice

1/2 c. sugar


  1. Combine rhubarb, sugar, grated orange rind, orange juice, and cinnamon stick in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes then add apples. Cook for another 2 minutes. Stir gently until the fruit is tender.
  3. Remove from heat and let cool. Discard cinnamon stick.
  4. Top with your choice of toppings and serve.


This recipe can be mixed with peeled and cubed pear as well. Add it after you do the apple.
