Rhubarb, rasberry and honey compote topped with crunchy pecans

Delicious on its own, with yoghurt or added to museli

Serves 6


125g/4½oz whole shelled pecan nuts

5 tbsp runny honey

500g/1lb 2oz rhubarb, trimmed and cut into 2.5cm/1in pieces

125g/4½oz raspberries, rinsed


Heat a dry frying pan, add the pecans and toss over a medium heat until the edges start to toast and turn golden. Keep an eye on them to prevent burning. Once toasted, pour in 2 tbsp of the runny honey and coat the nuts evenly by tilting the pan. Tip the honey-coated nuts on to a plate and set aside to cool.

Rinse the chopped rhubarb in a colander under the tap. Without shaking off the excess water, tip the fruit into a large saucepan. Put a lid on the pan and cook over a gentle heat for 10 minutes, giving the rhubarb an occasional stir to prevent it sticking. Add the remaining 3 tbsp of runny honey and give the mixture a stir. Finally, add the raspberries, turn off the heat and let the mixture sit with the lid on for a further couple of minutes. Allow to cool.

Roughly chop up the cold, crunchy pecans and scatter over the compote before serving.
