Mixed Berry Compote. No added sugar and only 3 ingredients. A great way to use up summer fruit!
My Mom and I love to go pick seasonal fruit at Milburn Orchards just over the border of Delaware. We always pick way to much and always have some fruit leftover. Making a compote is a great way to use up fresh fruit. Simply add fruit, pomegranate juice (or your favorite kind of juice) and a squeeze of lime juice. No sugar needed.
Use whatever fresh fruit you have on hand. I used fresh blueberries, strawberries and raspberries. This compote can be made with fresh or frozen fruit.
To make this Mixed Berry Compote simply combine berries, pomegranate juice and lime juice in a small saucepan. Simmer for 10 minutes or until the sauce is nice and thick. I like to mash the berries with the back of my spoon while they are cooking.
The compote can be stored in the refrigerator and warned up as needed.
This Mixed Berry Compote is so easy to make and can be served on everything from french toast, cheesecake, pancakes, ice cream and yogurt. The possibilities are endless. My favorite way is to serve this over plain Greek yogurt.
