Serve over Brennan’s Vanilla Ice Cream, angel food cake, pancakes, or waffles.

Combine rhubarb, sugar, and ¼ cup water in a heavy large saucepan over medium heat.  Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally, until sugar dissolves, about 3 minutes.  Simmer gently until rhubarb is tender but not falling apart, stirring occasionally, about 7 minutes.  Remove from heat.  Stir in strawberries.  Transfer to bowl and stir in mint.  Chill until cold, about 1 hour.
