Rhubarb-Compote makes an excellent rhubarb-topping for main dishes, cakes and ice-cream.
What is compote and rhubarb? More specifically, what is a compote?
It is simply a stewed fruit. The level of sugar added depends only upon your sweet-tooth.
I think this topping will definitely need some sugar!
Compotes compliment any variety of desserts you may be serving such as ice-cream, a cake perhaps, and even yoghurt.
It is not only made with sugar and lemon either. Other things such as vanilla, spices or orange or other flavors can be added as well to enhance the taste.
This sauce is used for main-course meat dishes. Compotes are frequently used with pork and beef as a sweet taste to combat a stronger taste from the meat.
If you like, this rhubarb-sauce stands by itself also served simply in a bowl with nothing else added.
You can refrigerate this compote for 4 or 5 days too.
