Strawberry-Rhubarb Sundaes

Source: Everyday Food, May 2008


  • 1 pound strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 2 rhubarb stalks, cut into 1/2-inch pieces (2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 pints vanilla ice cream
  • Shortbread Wedges, or store-bought shortbread cookies, for serving (optional)


  1. In a large saucepan, place strawberries, rhubarb, sugar, and 1/4 cup water; bring to a simmer over high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until rhubarb begins to break down, 6 to 8 minutes.

  2. Refrigerate until cool, at least 1 hour and up to 1 week. Spoon strawberry-rhubarb sauce over scoops of ice cream; serve with shortbread, if desired.

    I substituted brown sugar. I also added a tablespoon of butter and 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. Served with the homemade shortbread wedges and whipped cream. Delicious!!!

    I must say, I have been enjoying Sarah's video's immensely. I have made everything she demos and love the fact that I can prepare it at the same time she is showing me on my IPAD. Keep them coming.
