Strawberry Rhubarb Compote

Strawberries, rhubarb and honey are simmered over gentle heat to create this simple compote.

I love the combination of strawberry and rhubarb, it’s one of my favorite pie fillings but it’s also wonderful as a compote to eat for breakfast over Greek yogurt or crepes, or for dessert I love it warm with a little frozen yogurt. What do you like to do with fruit compote?

I had the hardest time finding rhubarb, if you can’t find any in your area you can use just the strawberries instead. You can use agave, sugar, stevia or Splenda in place of honey, this would be 0 points plus with stevia or Splenda.

  1. Made this with Swerve sugar as wanted to make for someone diabetic. I made into a “sauce” with 1/4 cup fresh squeezed orange juice to the mix (no water) and also put in 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon and vanilla extract. There were no chunks of fruit after it cooked for at least 15 minutes. It thickens as it sits.This is so good could eat it with a spoon. I buy wash and chop and freeze rhubarb when in season so I can make these rhubarb recipes any time. I also love your crisp and baked oatmeal recipe. Made the crisp for my mom and she loved it. Plan to take her some of this to use on oatmeal, yogurts, shortcake…etc.

  2. I had a lot of strawberries and 2 stalks of rhubarb … just wanted quantities, in order to adjust! Made a great topping for vanilla ice cream, with a little bit of powdered ginger for extra zing. Thanks!
