    This recipe is beautiful! I only had rhubarb so i put 3 cups of rhubarb and no strawberries and then I also added a 1/4cup of water with the rhubarb and sugar to make it a bit thinner, it was still quite thick but very nice! This was has been put in the favorites.

    Just made this again and I still love how easy it is to make! Plan to serve it over angel food cake. Glad to see they've updated the nutritional info online so there's no longer a discrepancy.

    Easy to make and tastes delicious! I served over vanilla ice cream. I wonder about the nutritional info though...magazine says 96 calories, online says 55 for the same serving size.
