Slow-Cooker Rhubarb Strawberry Sauce Recipe

Slow-Cooker Rhubarb Strawberry Sauce Recipe

We recently started growing our own rhubarb, and we live in a part of Oregon where strawberries are plentiful. I created this to drizzle over ice cream and filled a crisp with the rest. —Kim Banick, Salem, Oregon
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 4-1/2 hours YIELD:10 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 cups sliced fresh or frozen rhubarb, thawed (about 10 stalks)
  • 4 cups fresh strawberries (about 1-1/4 pounds), halved
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons cold water
  • Vanilla ice cream

Directions

  • 1. In a 3-qt. slow cooker, combine the first six ingredients. Cook, covered, on low 4-5 hours or until rhubarb is tender.
  • 2. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and cold water until smooth; gradually stir into sauce. Cook, covered, on low 30 minutes longer or until thickened. Serve with ice cream. Yield: 10 servings.
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.
