Fruity Rhubarb Sauce

My husband and I came up with these open-faced sandwiches when we didn't have much in the refrigerator. They've been a favorite ever since, particularly when we need a quick dinner. You can easily double the recipe when company drops by.

    Tasty but needs some cornstarch to thicken a tad. Hubby said he would give it a 7 based on the thickness over ice cream and a 10 for flavor.
