Editor's Note: If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.

"This is the second time I reached for this recipe. Definately a keeper. I'm using it for the Rhubarb Sauce this time, but I have fond memories of the time I used it with the Pork Tenderloin."
