I don't usually spend much time in the kitchen. My mom is in there all the time! She's a cook and so we always have something delicious to eat. Despite the fact I don't cook much, I've learned a lot from watching her. When some occasions occur and I need to use a pan, well I pretty much have fun.
I've started to work on a community garden and some of the seeds have finally come out and produced a bunch of amazing fruits and veggies! I took a bit of rhubarb last week and decided to make a simple rhubarb and strawberry compote.
So here it is!
1 ½ cup of sugar (preferably cane sugar)
1 stick of vanilla bean or 2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
3 gelatine sheets
4 to 5 cups of strawberries
3 to 4 cups of chooped rhubarb
Cut the rhubarb in small pieces.
Take a pan and put in the strawberries and the pieces of rhubarb. Turn your stove on at medium heat.
Once the pieces start to produce juice and they are soft add in the sugar and the vanilla. Stir and continue cooking.
Before turning off the stove, put the gelatine sheets in a bowl with cold water. Once they are soft, squeeze the water out and put them in your compote. Let it cool down.
Now you can insert it in cute jars and give it to friends and family.
