Rhubarb Compote

Rhubarb is great spring vegetable. They are sold by the stalk like celery. Rhubarb is naturally very tart so often lots of sugar gets added to balance out the flavor. In this recipe I am using honey and dates to sweeten it. The strawberries complement the flavor of the rhubarb and give the compote a beautiful red color. It is really delicious over yogurt- my kids devoured it like they were eating ice cream topped with chocolate. Seeing how much they enjoyed it I will make another batch and jar it so we can enjoy it through the summer.
