I also find the recipe too sweet. I rate it as a 5 with the following changes: Use the rhubarb in a ratio of 2:1 with sugar, for example, 1 C. rhubarb to 1/2 C. sugar. Also, add a pinch of salt and some vanilla after it has cooked. My small batch cooked in 4 minutes.
This was way TOO sweet for me. I had to go get more rhubarb to tone it down, otherwise I would have had to throw it away. For me half the sugar called for is more than enough and I'm not a fan of sour things.
Childhood memories...my grandmother used to make this and I loved it. This is a quick way to make it!!!! Thanks for sharing -- I made some and gave it to my mother.........she loved it!!!!
Definately need this sauce when eating the rhubarb muffins. excellent and easy to make
Yummy! Easy, no-fuss recipe. Thick enough when cool to use as jam on toast. I will make this again, probably with less sugar (the sweet/sour ratio being a matter of personal preference). I will use this method for stewed rhubarb, too: it was 'stewed' at about 7 minutes.
Thank you, I remember this from when I was a child, but didn't know it was so easy.
Perfect!! So easy yet so delicious, I served it on top of crepes...wonderful! Just watch it closely so that your microwave doesn't become a disaster!
Excellent! Brought back childhood memories of dixie cups full of sugar and fresh picked rhubarb stalks! I used 2 cups frozen rhubarb that was cut in pieces; after thawing I diced it, added 1/2 cup sugar and microwaved it at 2 minute intervals stirring each time. We'll use it over my sister's cheesecake this afternoon!
