While this recipe is Autoimmune Protocol friendly, it does contain quite a lot of sugar, so save it for the 'occasional treat!'
Recipe type: Drinks
Serves: 2.5 cups
  • 1 bunch of rhubarb
  • 1 punnet of strawberries
  • 1 blood orange
  • 1 cup sugar (I used coconut sugar)
  • 1 cup filtered water
  1. Prepare the rhubarb by washing thoroughly. Top and tail each stalk. Chop into pieces (roughly 3cm) and throw into a medium pot.
  2. Prepare strawberries by washing thoroughly. Remove hulls and chop each strawberry in half. Add these to the pot.
  3. Juice the blood orange and add the juice to your pot. Add sugar and water as well.
  4. Bring the covered pot to a boil. Lower temperature and gently simmer for 15 minutes.
  5. Turn off the heat and allow the stewed fruit to come to room temperature. Then place a clean cheesecloth over a sieve and strain. Pour the syrup into a bottle and refrigerate until needed.
  6. The leftover fruit compote can be kept for eating over cereal, ice-cream or whatever you fancy!
The cook time does not include cooling.
