  • 1 cup rhubarb chopped into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 cup strawberries hulled and quartered
  • 1 orange juiced
  • 1/4 cup cold filtered water
  • 2 tbsp honey or agave nectar
  • pinch sea salt
  1. In a small saucepan add the rhubarb, strawberries, orange juice, water, honey, and sea salt. Cover and allow to come to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, remove lid and and allow to simmer for 10 minutes. At this point most of the fruit should have broken down, remove from heat.

  2. Using a potato masher, mash the fruit and make the compote smoother.

  3. Taste and add more honey if needed. 

  4. Allow to cool for 10 minutes (the compote will thicken as it cools), then transfer the compote to a glass jar with a lid. Cool, uncovered at room temperature until it's no longer hot. Pop on the lid and transfer to the fridge to chill for at least 4 to 6 hours before using. See notes for serving suggestions.
