Ingredients:  
5 c. whole strawberries, stemmed
5 c. rhubarb, one-inch pieces
1 1/2 to 2 c. sugar, to taste (depending on how sweet the strawberries and how sour the rhubarb)
2 Tbsp. lemon juice (optional)

Directions:
Directions:
Bring all ingredients to a hard boil and boil 10 -14 minutes, until it begins to thicken. (I use a 10" skillet, uncovered.) Stir often, but gently with a wooden spoon, so the berries stay whole. Turn heat off, let sit uncovered up to 24 hours so it can cool and thicken. Stir periodically as it cools. Refrigerate up to 3 weeks, or freeze.

This is a delicious strawberry sauce. Serve over ice cream, cheese cake or pound cake. Fold into whipped cream or yogurt, or spread on toast. If you want a thinner sauce, shorten the boiling time.
