DELISH Rhubarb BBQ Sauce

Wendy Rusch


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


  1. In 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.
  2. In 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.
  3. At 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)
