  • 1 cup rhubarb sliced
  • 6 dates pitted, soaked and chopped
  • 3 cups strawberries quartered (about 1 quart)
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger grated (or 1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Put the dates in a heat-safe bowl and cover with boiling water. Let stand for 10-15 minutes until they soften, then drain the water and chop until it becomes almost a paste. Set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, combine the rhubarb, strawberries and ginger. Cook over medium-low heat until the fruit gets very soft, about 10-15 minutes. You may have to reduce the heat to low to keep it from sticking or burning.
  3. Turn off the heat and stir in the dates and vanilla. Serve.
