Sweet and Tangy Rhubarb Sauce

3-ingredients! Just rhubarb, brown sugar, and cinnamon and you are on your way to a tangy, sweet, ruby red sauce that is so delicious over ice cream, yogurt, oatmeal, on your bagels or even with grilled pork or chicken. I make this sauce frequently and we use it on everything. I’ll often make a big batch and freeze it so we can enjoy this sauce when our rhubarb harvest is over.

Sweet and Tangy Rhubarb Sauce


3 cups rhubarb, cut into 1″ pieces

1/2 cup maple syrup

1 cinnamon stick or 1 teaspoon of cinnamon


  1. Add rhubarb, brown sugar, cinnamon stick, or cinnamon to a large saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until rhubarb has released some liquid and softens, about 8-10 minutes. The sauce will begin to thicken and you can remove it from the heat to cool.
  2. Serve over yogurt, oatmeal, ice cream, on bagels, or with grilled pork or chicken.
