Finding rhubarb in stores means we can start enjoying Spring and Summer recipes. We look forward to cooking with this tart, ruby hued vegetable and think of many ways to use it, from pies and pastries to jams and spreads.

We love making this compote of sorts, then spooning it over ice cream for an easy and colourful dessert. If we cut the rhubarb stalks into larger pieces, once it’s cooked it remains large, but if you prefer a more jam-like texture, go ahead and cut your rhubarb into ½” pieces – as it cooks, it will break down into the more familiar pureed consistency. Roasting intensifies its flavour, and the fresh ginger, orange juice and maple syrup give it a wonderfully complex taste and aroma. If there is anything left, refrigerate or freeze leftovers.
