        Hello Susan, yes it is quite easy to make and the homemade version is so much more tastier than the store bought one.

        Hello Peggy, thanks for dropping by. That's another new product I will make with next years Rhubarb. Rhubarb sauce made with strawberries, sounds nice.

        It has been years since I have had a good rhubarb pie. My family also enjoyed rhubarb sauce made with strawberries. It was good to eat with toast.

        Loved rhubarb pie as a kid. My mom made them as did her mother. As an adult the rhubarb was mixed with fresh strawberries and the combination in a cobbler is delicious.
