It’s rhubarb season!
Rhubarb compote is a family favorite! It’s delicious for breakfast or dessert (over vanilla ice cream).
Many folks are intimidated by these long red stalks but never fear, it’s super easy to make a compote.
Rhubarb is great for digestion, high in fiber and has valuable nutrients like vitamin K, vitamin C and manganese. It’s also anti-inflammatory, which is super important with COVID-19.
To make the compote simply chop 3-4 rhubarb stalks into 1-inch pieces and add to a pot. Pour in about 1/2 cup water and bring to a gentle boil. Lower heat and simmer for 15 minutes or until rhubarb is very soft. Add (local unfiltered) honey to taste (it should be a little bitter) and serve warm or cold.
