Inspired by Asian and Middle Eastern flavours, this compote has subtle floral notes of rosewater and fragrant cardamom, which perfectly complement sweet and tart British rhubarb. It’s definitely a seasonal recipe, so grab some gorgeous pink stems of rhubarb when you see them appear at your favourite fruit and veg store. Forced rhubarb is available out of season but I prefer to use field or allotment grown, which is available from spring until early autumn and has a better colour and flavour
