    Hi Rebecca, I’m thinking it should be good for 3-4 days in the fridge. I’m sure it would freeze well too! It just never lasts that long around here:-)

    Wow, how simple is that?! I made mine in the crockpot this morning while I was doing other housework, and now I am having it on oatmeal for lunch :) I had a old tub of strawberries (the kind frozen in syrup) that I didn’t know what to do with, so I simply plopped that in my little crockpot and then used the strawberry container to measure the equal amount of rhubarb. I did add about half of the sugar too, because it needed a bit more than what was with the strawberries. I didn’t need the water, infact, I have a bit of extra liquid so I am reducing that yet in the crockpot for syrup for the kids’ pancakes tomorrow :)

    Hi, I use to eat this sauce growing up.. I have fresh ruhbarb, and strawberries. I will make this recipe, but I have a question. Once you put it into the canning jars how long will last in the refridgerator. Can you actually can this for shelf life> would it need more ingredients if you can if for the shelf.
    I doubt it would last very long in this house if kept in the refridgerator. Please let me know how long in the refidgerator. Aslo can you freeze this recipe? Thanks.
