Strawberry Rhubarb Compote

This compote is one of my favorite spring/summer treats. Whether you want a cheerful start to your day by spooning it over greek yogurt, or a sinless finish by serving it with a scoop of ice cream, you can’t go wrong with this recipe.


It’s a delicious balance of sweet and tart, everything you’d expect from this classic combination, with an endnote of a little something special.
