Strawberry Rhubarb Compote

Strawberry Rhubarb Compote in a large bowl

This Strawberry Rhubarb Compote is so delicious! It was an experiment that I was a little leery about because I started out with the intention of making a simple rhubarb compote but wanted to avoid adding a lot of sugar. Yummy strawberries….and then the maple syrup…and then freshly squeezed orange juice. Result – DELISH and HEALTHY! Skip the refined sugar.

Best of all, this yummy little sauce is ready to eat in 10 minutes. You can use this on yogurt, oatmeal, ice cream, cake, trifle or go all out and make a rhubarb bellini! I think this would be great as a sorbet as well – just freeze it. Then combine this with ginger-snap cookies? Whoa – now we’re getting crazy!
