OMGosh Delishiousness!!!

I found another recipe for a rhubarb bbq sauce and thought WOW, what a great and yummy idea...So I set forth to make my own, I love little inspirations like that!!!

This sauce is sooo could eat with crackers...seriously!!!

But on chicken, pork, brats, hot dogs, etc...its most Delish! I have not tried it on beef yet, other than all beef hot dogs.

I can't wait to try it slathered on a panini with oven roasted or grilled turkey breast and greens and such...YUMMMM

How to Make DELISH Rhubarb BBQ Sauce


  • 1In a large 3 qt saucepan, bring rhubarb and water to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered for 5-6 minutes or until tender and mushy, pour into a bowl, mush it up with a fork until there are no chunks, set aside.
  • 2In same large saucepan, add oil and when hot add onion, cook until onion is translucent. Add remaining ingredients including rhubarb. Over medium heat, bring mixture to a boil, stirring constantly, reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 10-15 minutes, stirring will thicken as it cools.
  • 3At this point you may can jars of sauce if you want or just put in large container (or several small) and store in refrigerator.

    Makes 2 quarts approx.

    I like to can 4 – ½ pint jars and place the rest into a quart jar for immediate use. The ½ pint jars are great for gift giving.

    You can easily half this recipe too! :o)
