Recipe: Rhubarb Glaze/Sauce

I found this recipe on the Rhubarb Compendium. I used it to glaze and serve with a pork loin and it was delightful! You could also serve it over pancakes or even with ice cream!


  • Rhubarb – 2 cups, chopped
  • 1/4 c. apple juice or apple juice concentrate
  • 2 TBL honey
  • ground nutmeg to taste
  • 2 TBL water
  • 1 tsp cornstarch


In a saucepan: stir the rhubarb, apple juice, nutmeg and honey together. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and cover. Simmer about 10 minutes or until the rhubarb is very tender.

Mix the water and cornstarch together and add to the rhubarb mixture. Cook and stir a minute or two more until desired thickness.

Use to glaze pork loin during the last hour of roasting, and serve warm as a sauce on the side.
