Special diet :


794g thin rhubarb stalks
1 vanilla bean
2⁄3 cup dry white wine
3 to 4 tablespoons granulated sugar
453g strawberries
2 tablespoons orange liqueur
1 tablespoon confectioner’s sugar


1. Peel rhubarb stalks and cut into small pieces.

2. Split open vanilla bean lengthwise and scrape out seeds. Cut in half crosswise. Place rhubarb, vanilla pod, vanilla seeds, wine, and sugar in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
