You'll love how well this strawberry rhubarb sauce goes with pancakes. It's a fresh from the farmers market favorite! —Mia Werner, Waukegan, Illinois

"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."
