Instructions:
  1. Wash and cut the washed rhubarb into fine slices.  Cut about 1/2 inch cubes.  
  2. In a large pot add the rhubarb, water, sugar and a stick of cinnamon.  Bring the mixture to a boil. 
  3. Reduce heat, put the lid on the pot and cook the mixture for about 5 minutes.  Keep an eye on the rhubarb because you want the rhubarb tender but not mushy.
  4. Next, combine the cornstarch with 1/4 water in a small bowl.  This will be used to thicken the rhubarb porridge
  5. After the rhubarb has cooked for 5 minutes, turn off the stove.  Remove the cinnamon stick out of the rhubarb mixture. 
  6. Add and stir in the corn starch mixture.  Add a little at a time and the rhubarb mixture will start to thicken.
  7. Taste to see if it is sweet enough. If not, stir in a little more sugar.
  8. Pour into a heatproof glass bowl to cool down. Sprinkle sugar to prevent a skin from forming. Cover and chill in the refrigerator.
  9. Once ready to serve ladle into bowls and garnish with either milk or cream. Enjoy!
