READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Barb G.

We love Rhubarb, we even grow it. Strawberries can be added to make a good fruit compote. Can be made with SPLENDA for diabetic.

Yum! I halved the recipe because I only had one pound of rhubarb. I used Splenda instead of sugar to cut down on calories. This is sooo good. I have been eating this with cottage cheese and and can't wait to try it over some ice cream. Thanks for sharing this keeper.
