"Strawberries and rhubarb make the perfect fruit pairing! This compote will liven up yogurt, oatmeal, scones, and ice cream and makes the most delicious topping for crepes! Try and find rhubarb stalks that are smaller in size as they are less tough."

  1. Combine chopped strawberries and rhubarb in a saucepan. Add sugar and salt; stir to coat evenly. Let sit until fruit has released its juices, about 10 minutes.
  2. Bring fruit mixture to a light boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until fruit is soft and mixture has thickened, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool, about 30 minutes. Mixture will further thicken upon cooling. Place in a jar or storage container and refrigerate for up to a week.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You may substitute white sugar if desired.

So delicious! I made it exactly as stated and it turned out great. It’s really good swirled into oatmeal or on a waffle (or just eaten with a spoon). Thanks for the great recipe!
