Notes
Servings: It's 8 big slices or 16 small ones.
Rhubarb: For the sake of the nice red color only work w/ the red parts of the rhubarb. When shopping for rhubarb look for rather thin red rhubarb. You'll need at least 8 stems (when working w/ all the rhubarb w/o regard to the color). If you stick to the red rhubarb you'll need about 16 stems. If you happen to have thick rhubarb stems each stem should be cut lengthwise. What to do w/ leftover rhubarb? Just make same rhubarb compote ...
Vanilla sugar: It's sugar w/ vanilla seeds.
