How To Make rhubarb compote

  • 1
    Stir together rhubarb and sugar in a large saucepan and let stand until rhubarb releases some liquid, about 10 minutes.
  • 2
    Bring rhubarb mixture to a boil over medium-high heat; stir occasionally. Reduce heat; simmer, keep stirring occasionally, until rhubarb has broken down but some whole pieces remain, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • 3
    Place ginger in a fine-mesh sieve set over a small bowl. Press down firmly with a spoon until juices are released (to yield about 1 teaspoon). Discard solids. Stir ginger juice into rhubarb mixture. HINT - you can use 1 teaspoon of grated ginger from a tube instead of juicing it yourself.
  • 4
    Let sauce cool completely before serving.
