Balsamic Rhubarb Compote

Recipe Summary

Preparation time: 30 minutes

Number of servings: 4

Ingredients

    • 3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
    • 2/3 cup sugar
    • 3/4 tsp grated peeled fresh gingerroot
    • 2 fresh rhubarb stalks, leaves discarded, ends trimmed, and stalks cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices, or 2 cups frozen sliced rhubarb, thawed, reserving liquid


Directions

In a saucepan, simmer vinegar with sugar and gingerroot, stirring, until sugar is dissolved; then stir in rhubarb (with reserved liquid if using frozen). If using fresh rhubarb, simmer until crisp-tender, about 1 minute, and transfer with a slotted spoon to a bowl. If using frozen, as soon as mixture returns to a simmer transfer rhubarb with slotted spoon to bowl. Simmer liquid until thickened slightly, about 5 minutes, and remove pan from heat. Stir in rhubarb. Serve compote warm or at room temperature.
