Vanilla beans can be rinsed, stored in a sealed container, and used again and again.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the rhubarb, granulated sugar, and vanilla bean and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer until the rhubarb is barely tender, about 5 to 6 minutes. Stir in the strawberries, remove from heat, and let cool. Remove the vanilla bean.

Step 2

Whip the cream with the confectioners' sugar until soft peaks form. To serve, top each slice of cake with some warm conserve and a few dollops of whipped cream.
