  • 1 pound fresh rhubarb, cut into 12-inch-wide pieces (about 3 cups)
  • 3/4 cup sugar or 1/3 cup agave syrup
  • 1/4 cup water (only if using sugar)
  • 1 pint fresh strawberries, hulled and halved


Combine all ingredients in a heavy, large saucepan. Cover and heat over medium low until the mixture comes up to a simmer.

Uncover and stir, cooking for about 5 minutes, or until rhubarb begins to break apart and strawberries are softened.

Remove from heat and let cool for 1 hour before serving. Keeps in the fridge for 1 week or in an airtight container in the freezer for 6 months.
