Strawberry Rhubarb Compote

Rhubarb is available locally in early spring. The reddish stalks are edible and are often paired with sweeter fruits to balance their tartness. Rhubarb is also high in pectin, a type of soluble fiber, which makes a “jam-like” consistency when cooked. Because of this quality, it is often used in compotes or baked desserts. This compote can be served with yogurt, oatmeal or grilled chicken.
