TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 2-1/2 cups chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb (1-inch pieces)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons grated lemon peel
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sliced fresh or frozen unsweetened strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 to 4 drops red food coloring, optional
  • Pound or angel food cake

Directions

  • 1. In a saucepan, combine rhubarb, water, sugar, lemon peel and salt; bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Cook, uncovered, over medium heat until rhubarb is soft, about 10-15 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand for 5 minutes. Stir in strawberries, lemon juice and cinnamon. Add food coloring if desired. Cool. Serve over cake. Yield: 3 cups.
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.
