Strawberry Rhubarb Compote

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by foodtvfan

Quick and easy fruit compote to serve over ice cream, frozen yogurt, or cake. It is also good used in a trifle or make individual desserts in a wide-mouth wine glass; cut pieces of pound cake or angel cake, add some sauce, scoop of ice cream and more sauce on top. Add a dollop of whipped cream and some crushed nuts on top to make it decadent. From a magazine clipping a long time ago.

Thanks for this. I made this not thinking it would be the highlight of the dessert and it was. Really good flavor, with just enough citrus tang from the orange zest/juice. Very good red color. Made and enjoyed on Saturday, left in fridge and enjoyed again Tuesday night. Plan to have more tonight. Thanks!
