Rhubarb & Plum Compote with Orange & Lemon
This rhubarb & plum compote with orange & lemon juice is ideal to use in pies, cakes, or to top a dessert such as vanilla pudding. I made a big batch and stored it in jars in the fridge to then use in a delicious custard pie and triple swirl cake.
One important thing to note though is that there are two types of rhubarb, one has a green core, the other a red one. If you can only find green ones (like me) and you find the colour of the compote a bit greenish you can add a few drops of grenadine/squash or jam like raspberry or strawerry jam. Don’t go overboard though, just a tablespoon of a jam or a few drops of grenadine will help give it a red colour. Alternatively you can use red food colouring as well of course.
