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