Rhubarb Compote is full of antioxidants
Rhubarb compote is very easy to make. It contains a medley or mixture of fruit that is full of antioxidants. These antioxidants are very good for our health.
Rhubarb - 1 bunch - about 6 or 8 stalks, the redder the better.
Prunes -I cup, pitted or unpitted
Goji berries - 1/2 cup
Raisins -1/2 cup
Ginger, crystallized - 1/4 cup, cut into small pieces
Grape juice, dark - 1/2 - 1 cup
This compote is naturally sweetened by the fruit and the sweetness of the grape juice.
Place all in a large saucepan and cook till soft. This is about 15-20 minutes on electric hotplate and shorter for gas cooking.
When cooled place in small containers. One can go in the fridge for immediate use and place the others in the freezer so that you always have a fresh supply of this lovely, healthy compote.
Compote - a slowly stewed fruit.
The pit is the stone or seed in the middle of fruit. Pitted means that the pit has been taken out. Unpitted means the pit or stone is still in the fruit. We do not eat the stone. It is too large and pointy.
