Strawberry Rhubarb Compote


The recipe for this is at the bottom.  I had to add pictures because I lost the original recipe that I ended up steering away from anyway so I wanted everyone to see the colors and consistencies to be available to all of you.

Ok, so I know this is going to sound really terrible, but I
don’t have an exact recipe for this. 
While I was making this, I just kind of went by whatever I felt like
looked good.  There are many recipes
online for strawberry rhubarb compote but I’ll try to remember as much as I can
for this one. 
  • Rhubarb (I used some that we have in the garden, about 2-3 pieces worth which I think made about 4 cups)
  • Strawberries (I used fresh strawberries but you can use
    frozen ones that have dethawed.  I put
    about 6-8 large strawberries into the compote)
  • 1 ½ cups of sugar (I don’t like my compotes/jams sweet, I
    love the sourness that is created by the strawberries and rhubarb themselves
    but by all means add as much sugar as you would like)
  • A little bit of water, just enough to coat the bottom of the

  1. Chop up rhubarb into little pieces as seen in above
  2. Chop up strawberries as small/big as you’d like depending on
    your preference.
  3. Add water (enough to coat the bottom) to your saucepan.  Add rhubarb and sugar.
  4. Make sure you are constantly stirring on medium-low heat for
    the rhubarb.  Once it starts to look
    really soft as pictured above add in the strawberries.
  5. Continue to stir until it reaches the color in the above
    pictures.  I believe it was about 30-45
    minutes worth of sitting in the saucepan. 
    Throughout the process you can add as much as you’d like and taste test
    while it’s being made because like I said I don’t like sweet so you may need
    more sugar than I used.
