A backyard rhubarb patch provides tangy stalks that Carol uses in the same mouthwatering way her mother did. "I can whip up the sauce for Rhubard Sundaes in just 4 minutes while the chicken is broiling." she shares. It's fun to fix when unexpected guests drop by and also delicious served over pound cake. I freeze extra rhubarb I've picked so we can enjoy this treat anytime we like throughout the year."—Carol Bushell, Holyrood, Ontario

"This is a very sweet tasting topping. At first I served it warm because I could not wait to try it - but it melted the ice cream!! If you try this recipe (which is good if you like rhubarb) I would recommend making it early and chilling it."
