One of my favorite summertime treats is rhubarb. I'm sure that is pretty obvious from several posts I have written in the past. If you aren't a regular reader here but you love rhubarb, you will want to check out some of my other rhubarb recipes!
Grumpy's favorite fruit is the raspberry. My mom would always be sure to send me home with a few pints of fresh picked raspberries from their garden when I would visit because she knows how much he loves them! For this weeks share, I decided to combine the two and make a sauce. I then used it as a filling for my sweet rolls. I love how moist and delicious these rolls turned out!
When we first moved to the Capitol region, I went on a search for all the local markets. I have always loved shopping at them as well as stopping at local farm stands. My parents are vendor's at the local farmer's market back home and I love being able to support people who make a living like my Dad and Mom do. While I miss getting my home grown produce from my parents, I do love places like the Troy Waterfront Farmer's Market, browsing the pasta stand, the wine vendors, fresh fruit and vegetable tables and especially the bakery table! I've been known to buy some local cheese, an iced coffee, and even an occasional cronut while at the market and sit under the trees to enjoy a little bit of all of it!
For this recipe I used rhubarb and raspberries that I had in my freezer. You can use fresh if you have it on hand, it doesn't make a difference when making the sauce as fresh will still release juices when cooking. Fresh or frozen, the rhubarb you use should be chopped into small pieces to help it break down when cooking. The sauce can also be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator up to 1 week. What you don't use in the rolls is great as a topping for your hot oatmeal, on pancakes, or even just spread on a slice of toast!
