GINGERED RHUBARB-BERRY SAUCE
Makes 2 1/2 - 3 cups.
4 cups chopped rhubarb
2 cups hulled, halved strawberries
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup orange juice
Grated zest of 1 orange
Grated zest of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon finely grated ginger root
Pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Combine all ingredients in a heavy saucepan.
Stir well and bring to a boil over medium heat.
Reduce heat and simmer, stirring once and skimming off any foam that forms on top, until rhubarb is just tender, 10-12 minutes.
Cover and refrigerate until serving.
Serve over ice cream, pound cake or angel food cake.
A new twist on the combination of rhubarb and strawberries. The sweet-tart flavor enhanced with the spark of fresh ginger root. A tasty topping for ice cream or cake.
