I omitted the strawberries, added an extra cup of rhubarb, and substituted orange juice for the grape juice. I served it with angel food cake and whipped cream. It was well received. Leftovers were served with tapioca pudding and whipped cream. I sure it would be good with rice pudding or bread pudding as well.

I was able to have desert ready for company after church on Sunday by making a shortcake the day before and serving this sauce over it. It was delicious! I should have shut the crock pot off a little while before serving it so the sauce would have time to cool. But that was my fault, not the recipes!
