Vanilla Scented Rhubarb Compote

I love this warm or cold.  It is great on cake, pancakes, and so much more!

4 cups rhubarb, cut into 1" pieces
1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar (depending on how sweet-tart you like it)
1/2 tsp fresh grated nutmeg
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla

In a sauce pan combine the rhubarb, sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon.
Over medium heat bring to a boil.
Cook stirring often until the rhubarb becomes soft - About 10 to 15 minutes.
If you like a very chunky texture then take the compote off the heat and stir in the vanilla.
If you like a semi-smooth texture then take the compote off the heat and mash with a potato masher until you get the texture you want.  Stir in the vanilla.


  1. Yay! Something new to do with rhubarb besides make pie and crumble cake!

  2. mmmm! Sounds good. I love rhubarb :)
