This very simple but rich sauce can be made in larger batches right about the time the rhubarb is ready. It can be frozen or canned for later use.

Directions

Thoroughly wash about 1 lb. of fresh rhubarb and peel the fibrous outer layer off with a knife. Cut the stalks into small pieces, about 1/4 inch dice. Combine the rhubarb with the red currant jelly and cook over medium heat until reduced by about 1/3. Strain the rhubarb out of the sauce. You should have about 1 C. of liquid. If you have more, reduce over medium heat until the desired 1 C. is reached. Save the cooked rhubarb and chill it overnight. This can be served just like you would applesauce with a pork chop.

Combine the port wine and arrowroot and stir out any lumps. Add the port mixture to the boiling rhubarb sauce and stir vigorously for 1 minute. Simmer for 2 minutes. Drizzle chicken breast with oil, season with salt and pepper and grill until done. Serve sauce on the side or on top of chicken.
