You probably have already have these few ingredients in your kitchen cupboards.

You can use fresh OR frozen rhubarb for this sauce recipe.

I just finished making a batch of this, and served it warm on ice cream (see photo), and my husband just said it was "fabulous"! :-)

The rhubarb I used for this recipe was not very red, as you can see by the colour of the sauce in the picture above.

If you don't like the colour of your rhubarb, you can make green rhubarb into crimson red rhubarb; follow the link below to see how:

Note - If you are using frozen rhubarb for this recipe, use a little less water than the 1 cup.

3 cups chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb, thawed
1 cup water
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 pkge. (about 60 grams) (cook-and-serve) vanilla pudding mix


In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the rhubarb, water and sugar.

Microwave, uncovered, on medium-high or high (depending on microwave wattage) for 7 - 9 minutes, or until rhubarb is tender, stirring occasionally.

Stir in the pudding mix until blended.

Cook for another 1 - 1 1/2 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally.

Serve this delectable microwave rhubarb sauce over ice cream, pudding, cake or whatever you desire, and enjoy!

Serves 6 - 9.

~ This rhubarb syrup is also delicious served over this pound cake recipe !

Did You Know?

Did you know that the beautiful flower stalk or seed pod that the rhubarb plants produces from time to time in the Spring should be removed as soon as they appear?

I find the seed pod of the rhubarb plant to be simply beautiful!

I always hate to remove it, because of how fascinating it looks.

How Great is The Creator!

It is not wise, however, to allow the flower to grow to seed, because the flower will take "energy" away from the development of the leaf stalks, and the quality of the rhubarb harvest will be affected.

Check out the link below, and see how Helen used the rhubarb flowers from her rhubarb patch to make a very striking botanical display on her mantel!
