Print Rhubarb compote

This compote is lovely warm and cold; with yoghurt and granola or porridge for breakfast; with custard or ice cream for dessert; and with nothing at all but a teaspoon. To take it up a notch in indulgence, purée it and ripple through some double cream.


  • 450g rhubarb, chopped
  • 225g dates, stoned
  • A little water
  • ½ lemon


  1. Stew the rhubarb and dates gently in a little water and stir in the juice of half a lemon just before serving.
