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.

Instructions Checklist

  • 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! Read More

Holy smokes this was awesome! It’s sweet. It’s tart. It’s addictive. While it was still hot, I put it on my pancakes. Oh my was it good. I put it in crepes for brunch. I added it to my yogurt and then just caved in and ate it with a spoon right out of the jar. I quickly made another batch. That’s how good this is. It gives about 3/4 pint or 400 ml. Love this stuff!
