Blueberry/Rhubarb Breakfast Sauce Recipe

My husband's aunt gave me this recipe, and it's become our family's favorite breakfast topping. Sometimes I'll substitute cherry pie filling (which I put through the blender) for the blueberry pie filling—it's tasty, too! —Rita Wagenmann, Grangeville, Idaho

"This was very good although I used far less sugar. My rhubarb is very red and quite sweet so I was able to make this with 3/4 cup of sugar and it was lovely."

"My family likes this sauce. I used cherry jello instead of the raspberry. It was delicious."

"I made a double batch of this with a couple adjustments.First I cut the amount of sugar in half.I figured with the sugar in the pie filling and jello,it'd still be plenty sweet.I was right. Next,I wanted it be more of a jam.So I doubled the amount of jello.It turned out perfectly.Mom and I had it on our waffles last night and absolutely loved it.I was even eating some of it right from the jar."

"I tried it with strawberries (blended them) and it was wonderful. I wish I could give it 10 stars. I'm diabetic and only use a tablespoon with a little water. Awesome! I have used it with blueberries too!"

"I have also had this recipe for a couple years from this site. I actually can it & have given it as gifts at Christmas & during the year. Everyone raves about it....good on pancakes or waffles with whipped cream...feel like you are eating out for Breakfast."

"I received this recipe from a B&B owner, back when it was first published. I've made it many times and frozen it in small containers. When using, I add water to thin it out, as that is how it was first served to me. It serves more than it states and is so very, very good!! If you don't want to thin it with water, you could use less sugar, as it is sweet."

"I would love to make this recipe, but how much of an exchange for either honey or agave syrup would it take to equal 4 cups of sugar?? I'm new to this exchange-type stuff and would love to try this recipe."

"loubaby, did you happen to notice that this makes 56 servings? That works out to a little over a tablespoon per serving. If that's still too high for you, experiment with sugar substitutes. I'm also rating this 5 stars to boost its rating. The stars are supposed to reflect how well the recipe turned out not how you perceive its healthiness."

MY REVIEW

"It really annoys me that people comment on a recipe they haven't tried. If you won't make it, fine, move on. Is your life so rigid and are you so desperate for control that you feel the need to bash someone's recipe? Really, it's not about you, it's about someone's family and what they enjoyed. You don't want to serve it to your family, that's fine, but you aren't the food police so keep your uptight need for control to yourself."

"It's a sauce! Not the whole meal! Sounds like a nice alternative to traditional "pancake syrup" which is loaded with sugar and ingredients that are unpronounceable."
