Strawberry Rhubarb Topping

Yesterday was National Strawberry Rhubarb Pie day.  I love the combination of strawberries and rhubarb, but not a huge pie fan. So I compromised. I made a strawberry rhubarb topping.

Rhubarb and strawberries are one of my favorite combinations. Rhubarb starts coming on in May and just as it’s finishing, the strawberries burst on the scene. So what better way to say good bye to Spring and hello to Summer? And best of all, it’s so easy!

Here’s How to Do it:

Put all the ingredients (except the optional bourbon) into a medium sized saucepan and bring to a boil.

Reduce the heat to medium-low, add the bourbon, and simmer for about 30 to 40 minutes, or until the fruit has broken down and the sauce has thickened.

Serve cold or hot over ice cream or pudding or, like we did when I was a kid, just put some in a bowl and enjoy!
