RECIPE: Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce

This sauce is super easy to make and delicious for breakfast or dessert with a spoonful of yogurt or crème fraîche.

Yield: Makes about 5 cups

2 pounds strawberries, halved if large
1 pound rhubarb, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
3/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons minced crystallized ginger
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
3/4 teaspoon grated lime peel

Place 1 1/2 pounds strawberries and rhubarb in medium pot. Mix in sugar, ginger, lime juice, and peel. Cook over high heat until sugar dissolves, stirring often. Boil 4 minutes, stirring often. Reduce heat to medium; simmer just until rhubarb is beginning to fall apart, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in remaining strawberries. Cool. Chill until cold, at least 1 hour and up to 1 day.
