any type of cake will do

This is a good way to use up leftover cherries and rhubarb.

Rhubarb Compote

  • 6 cups rhubarb chopped into 1/2″ pieces
  • 3 cups cherries halved
  • 2 tbsp grated ginger
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar

Mix everything together in a sauce pan and let sit 15 minutes. Bring to a boil, then simmer until thick, about 15 minutes. Let cool for 2 hours before serving. Good on top of pound cake, ice cream etc.

 

About Rufus' Food and Spirits Guide

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.
