Taking full advantage of the bounty of spring, this strawberry and rhubarb compote makes a tasty dessert or snack that also works nicely as a topping for pancakes or ice cream. Gently stewed with a touch of ginger and lime, it not only has the familiarity of a childhood comfort food, but also the complexity of flavor that adults appreciate.
The best part? It only takes a few short minutes to prepare. So run, do not walk, to your local farmers market for the ingredients and try it. You won't regret it.
