Poached Rhubarb - Instructions
1. In a non-aluminum saucepan, combine sugar and rhubarb. Let stand at room
temperature until the rhubarb begins to release its juices, about 15 minutes.
2. Add cinnamon and cloves. If the rhubarb hasn't released much juice, add water a
tablespoon at a time just until the bottom of the pan has a coat of water. Bring to a
boil, stirring constantly.
3. Let boil a few minutes. Then, reduce heat, cover and simmer until rhubarb is tender
and liquid thickens, about 10 to 12 minutes. Stir mixture occasionally. Taste, adding
more sugar if needed.
4. Remove saucepan from heat. Let cool to room temperature without stirring. Rhubarb
will thicken as it cools.
