Great stuff!, Member mrdkoser

Used this sauce as a base and then added 1 lb of strawberries and a pint of red raspberries instead of addining red food dye and added another cup and half or more sugar. Always gotta have Rhubarb with strawberries, its a must. Poured over Angel food cake with vanilla ice cream. It was Heavenly!!!
