  • In a medium saucepan, add rhubarb, 1/2 cup water, and granulated sugar. Let it simmer over a medium-high flame and then reduce to medium-low.
  • Simmer for about five minutes until rhubarb is tender. With an immersion blender, puree it, or mash it with a potato masher if desired. Taste and check if additional sugar is required.
  • Now, combine equal parts of water and cornstarch and stir into the hot sauce, whisking it continuously until it thickens. Continue adding cornstarch mixture until the sauce reaches the desired consistency. 
  • Serve it warm or refrigerate until chilled.
