Strawberry and Rhubarb match because they both share a flavor compound called hexenal that has green, apple-like notes.
Rødgrød (Danish red berry dessert)
Rødgrød is a traditional Danish red berry dessert with a thick texture like tapioca. Red berries such as strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries are gently stewed in sugar and thickened with potato starch. To balance the berries and sugar, tart yet floral Rhubarb is added to the mix, and once cooked, the dessert is served with fresh double cream.
