Rhubarb Compote

Even though rhubarb is generally considered a fruit, it is actually a vegetable. Only its thick, celery-like stalks are edible. Rhubarb is a good source of potassium, and supplies vitamins A, C, and calcium.

Ingredients

5 stalks rhubarb, cut into 1.5 cm pieces 500 g
2 tbsp sugar 26 g
2 tbsp water 30 mL

Before you start

This recipe calls for a minimum amount of sugar. Add more if you wish to compensate for rhubarb's intense tartness.

Method

  1. Wash the stalks briefly. If necessary, the fibrous strings can be removed by pulling them as with celery. Cut them crosswise into approximately 1,5 cm pieces and place them in a bowl with the sugar. Chill for about 12 hours in the refrigerator.
  2. Transfer the rhubarb with all the juice into a saucepan. Pour in the water, cover, and cook over medium-low heat for about 20 min, with occasional stirring, until the rhubarb has softened completely.
  3. Let it cool down and serve it cold or at room temperature.

Remarks

The compote can be kept up to 7 days in the refrigerator, or up to 3 months in the freezer.
