A) Rhubarb compote: to make a simple ‘rhubarb compote’ ( aka ‘stewed rhubarb’), you add 2 tbsp water with about 1-2 cups chopped rhubarb (1/2 inch long pieces), bring to medium heat and it’ll mush down in about 5-10 min, then add white/brown sugar to taste.
B) Rhubarb “leather” (dried fruit ) You can actually spread out this sweetened rhubarb compote 1/4 in thick on Saran plastic wrap on a cookie sheet and dry it in the sun , to make your own fruit leather “roll-up”! I even add raisins and/or some dates and/or ground up orange or lemon zest for amazing flavors… Takes 2 or 3 days of full sun to dry. Don’t let it get rained on!
