 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/2  Lbs.          rhubarb
    1 1/2  C.            water
      3/4  C.            sugar
      1/2  Tsp.          vanilla
    3      Tbsp.         cornstarch
    1      C.            heavy cream
      1/4  C.            sugar
    1      Tsp.          vanilla
 
 Wash rhubarb, trim and cut into 1/2 inch slices.  Combine with
 water and sugar and simmer until soft.  Stir in vanilla.  Blend
 cornstarch with a little cold water to make a smooth stiff paste.  Stirring
 constantly, add to rhubarb and cook for 5 minutes, or until
 thick and clear.  Pour into glass serving dish.  Whip cream until
 frothy, add sugar and vanilla and whip until stiff. Pipe through
 pastry tube in decorative swirls on compote or cover top with
 spoonfuls of whipped cream.  If you prefer to serve without whipped
 cream, you could serve with a little milk poured on each portion.
