Sam's Rhubarb Sauce

“My favorite way to cook rhubarb is simply to cook down the cut up stalks with a tiny bit of water and a lot of honey. Then, spoon it over ice cream or eat plain.” Better yet, "Elaine's Rhubarb Sauce." That's the way my mother always made it - and she was a hellova good cook. A couple of things - Too much water it becomes watery. Always add a little less than you think that it needs. - Once the water starts bubbling, stir often, keep covered (when not stirring), and keep the heat low so that it doesn't burn. - It takes a LOT of honey (or sugar). Once you've added the first big bit at the beginning, wait until it is almost sauce, and then add to taste. (Be careful - once it is almost sweet enough, it becomes too sweet really fast.) Hope that you like it.
