Spiced Rhubarb Sauce for Pork or Chicken

The rich, saltiness of meats often benefit from the light, sweetness of fruits and vegetables. Although we don’t think of rhubarb as a vegetable because we nearly always serve it sweet, it’s technically a veggie. This refreshing sauce pairs especially well with pork (adds sparkle to ribs, for instance), but it will lift the flavor of a roasted chicken or poached chicken breasts and is great with all grilled meats and fish. Add some heat to it — Tabasco, pepper flakes or harissa, if you’d like.

Spiced Rhubarb Sauce for Pork or Chicken

Ingredients

Scale

78 medium stalks of rhubarb

4 tablespoons granulated sugar (or more to taste)

Juice and zest of 1 small orange

1 teaspoon Rain’s Choice pure Vanilla Extract

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

Trim rhubarb stalks and remove any leaves. Cut stalks into 1-inch chunks. Place in a 3 quart saucepan. Add sugar, orange juice and zest. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce to a simmer. Cook until the fruit has softened and can be pressed with a spoon 20 – 30 minutes.

Place in a serving bowl and add vanilla, cinnamon, salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with pork roast or chops.
