Strawberry Rhubarb and Orange Compote

IMG_8631

Tart rhubarb paired along slightly sweet strawberries and orange is a combination that you don’t want to miss out on! While still on holiday I was digging through the freezer and found half a bag of frozen strawberries. So that was that time to create something with strawberries I also had some rhubarb that was about to go south so that was getting used to.

This compote is perfect topping for yogurt and muesli in the morning, mixed with whipped cream and crumbled meringues for a tasty take on eton mess. Even acts perfect as a sweet pie or crumble filling!
