Rhubarb Compote with Yogurt & Almonds Recipe

Rhubarb Compote with Yogurt & Almonds Recipe

My grandma Dot used to make rhubarb compote and always had some in the freezer when I came to visit. This breakfast is a tribute to her. No two stalks of rhubarb are exactly alike, so make sure to taste your compote before you chill it. It should be tart, but sometimes needs a little extra sugar. —Michael Hoffman, Brooklyn, New York
