  • Set the barbecue up for grilling (direct method)
  • Put all the ingredients into a saucepan and bring to the boil over a high heat.
  • Reduce heat slightly and cover with a lid. Stir occasionally so the rhubarb cooks evenly and the sugar doesn’t burn. Barbecue for about 5 minutes or until the rhubarb is broken down but some softened whole pieces remain.
  • Remove from the heat and taste. If it is still quite sharp simply add a tsp more caster sugar until there is a good balance between sweet and sharp.
  • The star anise will continue to infuse the compote so remove straight away for a delicate flavour, or leave in for an extra 5-10 minutes for a slightly more intense flavour.
  • Allow the compote to cool slightly before serving, or make ahead and serve at room temperature.
