Thanks going out to my bestie Shawnee Sax and her sister Tanis Moore for sharing this Overnight Rhubarb Sauce. This is an old New Brunswicker’s trick from extracting the maximal flavour from rhubarb by letting it marinate in sugar overnight which pulls the juices from the rhubarb and eliminates the need to add water. The result is an intensely rhubarby-y rhubarb sauce and maintenance of the bright colours.Print
