Rhubarb and Blackberry Compote

rhubarbcompote Rhubarb is in season at the moment.  Now normally, I would combine rhubarb with apples to create a compote, but this time I tried blackberries and I was not disappointed. 

 

 

 

With only a handful or ingredients that get thrown together in the one saucepan, this really is super simple to make.

What are the benefits of making this homemade compote?

- You know all of the ingredients that were used;

- It doesn’t contain any preservatives or artificial sweeteners; and

- once you make it you won’t hesitate to make it again…. because it’s so simple!

Serving ideas

This rhubarb and berry compote can be served with coconut yoghurt, dairy free ice-cream, served with pancakes or even enjoyed on its own.

I am personally looking forward to using it when I create my next breakfast bowl by pairing the Rhubarb and Blackberry compote with fresh blueberries, blackberries, pitaya and coconut yoghurt.
