Spiced Rhubarb

The recipe for Spiced Rhubarb's been in my family for years—it was handed down to me by my mother, who got it many decades ago from her mother. This dish is good either hot or cold...with a meal (it's delicious alongside pork or lamb) or just plain. I even like to spread it on my breakfast toast! As for me, I'm a country girl. I was born in the country, and I'm still here.
