Strawberry-Rhubarb Compote

There are a number of reasons to love rhubarb, and this strawberry-rhubarb compote — which is divine spooned on top of cake or ice cream — is just one of them.

Yield: 8 to 10 servings.


  • 1 pound rhubarb, chopped
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 quart strawberries, washed and hulled


1. In a medium saucepan combine the rhubarb, sugar, and lemon juice. Cook, stirring gently, for about 5 minutes, or until the rhubarb becomes very soft.
2. Mash. Remove the pan from the heat. Stir in the berries and cool. Spoon on top of cake or ice cream.
  • Do you have any recipes for rhubarb pie?. It is next to impossible to find anywhere in Michigan – even amongst the high end pie companies (like Traverse Bay Pie Co.). I used to have one from my friends in Seattle when I lived there, but cannot locate it right now.
