Stewed Rhubarb with Star Anise and Ginger

From Jeanette's Healthy Living

If you like some pieces of rhubarb left in the Stewed Rhubarb, reduce the amount of pomegranate juice to 1/4 cup, and cook for 20 minutes only.

5 rhubarb "sticks", trimmed and cut into 1" pieces

1/2 cup pomegranate juice

1/2 cup ground jaggery

2 star anise

1 one-inch piece ginger, peeled, sliced

juice and zest of one orange

1/2 cup coconut milk

honey or agave nectar, to taste

toasted almonds, for garnish

Place rhubarb, pomegranate juice, jaggery, star anise, ginger, orange juice and orange zest in a saucepan. Bring to a boil; then reduce heat to low and cook for 30-35 minutes until rhubarb breaks down into a thick sauce.

Whip coconut milk with honey to taste until well blended.

To serve, spoon stewed rhubarb into glasses. Top with coconut milk. Garnish with toasted almonds.Fr
