Pink Saturday

Happy Pink Saturday Friends~

Well, the weekend is here again and so is Pink Saturday. Every week Beverly brings pink lovers together from all over the world to participate in her pink party. Thank you Beverly for hosting.

Today I thought I would share something a little different. It is rhubarb season here on the Island and I have been making all sorts of goodies with these red stalks. For those of you who have never had rhubarb, you're missing out on a real treat.

I decided to share with you a quick and easy recipe for Rhubarb Sauce. The best thing about it? It's pink!

Combine : 1 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
Optional : 1/2 - 1 Tbsp red jello powder, add to sugar.
4 cups rhubarb cut into 1 inch pieces
In a saucepan, dissolve the sugar in the water on the stove, bringing it to a boil. Reduce heat and add the rhubarb.
Optional: Add a shake of cinnamon and some lemon zest while cooking, if desired.
Cover and simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
You can double the recipe for a bigger quantity.
Pour into canning jars. Serve on biscuits, muffins, cake, toast, and it's especially good on ice cream.

The bowl that the rhubarb sauce is in is made of pottery here on the Island and it is pink and green. Do you like my salmon-pink roses?

Rhubarb is almost like a mini coffee cake; very moist and very good with chunks of rhubarb and a cinnamon sugar topping!

Rhubarb pudding...See how pink the fruit is?

and then there is rhubarb pie.

I just love the rich pink syrup from this tasty fruit pie!

Pretty salmon-pink roses.

Well, ladies, those are my pinks for this week. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out Beverly's lineup of pink participants.  Have a wonderful weeknd.
