MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 3, 2011

"Sorry, but we really didn't like it. I normally love rhubarb but this didn't do it for me. If anyone makes this, I would suggest using the optional food coloring. I didn't and it was green which is not very appetizing."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 15, 2010

"The rhubarb sauce was sweet and tangy, yet not overpowering. So simple to make. This would be a great dish to make in the fall. I will definitely make it again."
