Stewed Rhubarb

If you call this a rhubarb compote it sounds so much more fancy than stewed rhubarb.  Whatever you call it, cooking rhubarb down with a little sugar or honey and water makes a delicious dessert, ice cream topping, cake topping, or yogurt addition.

6 cups chopped rhubarb

1 cup sugar, OR 1/2 to 3/4 cup honey

1/2- 1 cup water

1 tsp grated ginger (optional)

Put rhubarb and water and ginger if desired,  into a sauce pan, bring to a boil then turn down to medium and simmer for 15 minutes or until Rhubarb is soft.  Add more water as needed to achieve desired consistency.  Once desired consistency and softness is achieved, add honey or sugar to taste, stirring until dissolved.
