READY IN: 20mins

Serve with my Vanilla-Citrus Tea Ring. Any remaining compote would be wonderful served for breakfast or dessert with a spoonful of yogurt or creme fraiche. From Bon Appetit.

Very very tasty! I used scissors to cut up the ginger and next time I will cut it up smaller as I didn't like biting into the bits of ginger so much. Otherwise, this was excellent and it was nice to have another tasty recipe for rhubarb besides just rhubarb sauce. Thanks Bev!
