Strawberry Rhubarb Compote

Strawberry Rhubarb Compote

Spring always makes me think of Rhubarb first and Strawberry second. And Artichokes, but that’s another story! And I love me some Rhubarb Sauce, sweet or savory, but I love me some Strawberry Rhubarb Compote even more. And in case you’re wondering, because not everyone knows, “compote” just means fruit cooked or preserved in a sugary syrup, and it just, well, sounds “fancier” than Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce.

Our Strawberry season is just ending up Nord, here, in Minnesota. So before it’s too late, I’ve been taking advantage and using strawberries, a lot! One is this Fresh Strawberry Compote. It’s just a simple, little sauce but it’s infused with fresh strawberry flavor.

Home-made Cherry Pie Filling

There was a time when I was a youngster, I didn’t like cherry pie. Or pretty much cherry anything. I couldn’t really “get it” because I love cherries so it would stand to reason I should love things made with cherries. I was boggled. Until once, when I was just a kid, about 19, a neighbor dropped off a paper grocery bag full of cherries from her tree and I needed to do something with them. Even then, I knew what a precious gift that was! And so came about abut my Home-made Cherry Pie Filling.
