Rhubarb Compote

This is a very versatile sauce. You can use it as a dessert topping, a side dish with roasted meats,,
and even mix with some savory items and salsa to make a custom fruit salsa for grilled Tuna, Chicken Breast, or Pork Chops to suggest a few.

This recipe is simple as pie ...well even simpler than pie because no crust!
If your going to the grocery or you have it in your garden get some and let's experiment and see if we can enchant your menu a bit with rhubarb.

Coarse texture Rhubarb Compote,
with cinnamon

Smooth texture Rhubarb Compote with a vanilla bean, and sprinkled with vanilla sugar.


4 cups rhubarb
1 cup sugar
1tablespoon lemon juice
1 cinnamon stick
water to just cover Rhubarb


1. Put the Rhubarb, 1/ 2 of the sugar , lemon juice in a pan and just cover with water.
You can also add a vanilla bean, cinnamon stick or both.

2. Simmer for 30 minutes or until rhubarb tender.

3. Check for sweetness. Add sugar to your taste. Too much sugar will overpower
the Rhubarb flavor. Remove vanilla bean and/or cinnamon stick.

If you want the sauce smoother , pulse it with a food processor or
puree in a blender.
