Here's an update from our BACKYARD FARMYARD this week!
I harvested the first stocks from our Rhubarb yesterday here at home and at the cottage. I didn't have enough to make a pie ( 4 cups ) but I did have just enough to make Strawberry- Rhubarb Date Compote to smother vanilla bean ice-cream with last night for dessert! It was oh so delicious, fast and easy!
Here's the recipe!
2 cups chopped rhubarb
2 cups sliced strawberries
4 dates chopped
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 table spoons water
Mix fruit, sugar and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil then lower heat to a simmer stirring occasionally for 10 minutes or until fruit is softened. Add vanilla.
The Cottage Hens got dessert too!
Did I mention how wonderful the compote was drizzled all over the ice-cream with just a dollop of whipped cream on top?
