Rhubarb Applesauce

Posted by Kristin Camplese on 05/30 at 08:00 AM

I wanted to do something slightly more savory with my recent bunch of rhubarb, which is tough because it is very tart and needs some sugar. I settled on the idea of something “applesaucey” and it was a hit with our grilled pork. It would be great with some strawberries added in (if you like the strawberry-rhubarb combo and are willing to part with your strawberries—but I’m not there yet.)

I added fresh ginger because it marries with the rhubarb so nicely. Then I sweetened this with a bit of honey, and it worked well. I think it would also be wonderful with some freshly chopped chives or rosemary.

Don’t forget to share your favorite rhubarb recipe this week for a chance to win a pound of rhubarb from Jade Family Farm. See details about the contest.

Ingredients

4-5 cups of rhubarb, cut into 1 inch pieces
3-4 cups of apples, peeled, cored, and roughly chopped
1/2 cup of honey
1/2 cup of water
1 T freshly chopped ginger
Pinch of salt
Pinch of cinnamon
Pinch of cardamom
Freshly chopped herbs (if desired)

Directions

Combine all ingredients (except herbs) in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Simmer for 20-30 minutes until completely softened and the rhubarb is falling apart. If your apples are still too chunky, you can use a potato masher to break them up. Serve as a side dish or with grilled meat. Serves 4.
