Mixed Berry Compote

I’ve always loved going to pick seasonal fruit with my mom, but we usually pick way too much and have leftovers. So what do you do with your overripe (or under-used) berries? Making a mixed berry compote is a quick and delicious way to use up all of your extra fresh fruit!

Super easy to make, this berry compote recipe requires only 3 ingredients and needs just 5 minute of prep time. How easy is that? Perfectly sweet with no added sugar, this compote makes the perfect topping for french toast, pancakes or even ice cream.

Ingredients

  • Mixed berries: Use whatever frozen or fresh fruit you have on hand! I used fresh blueberries, strawberries and raspberries.
  • Juices: The only liquids you’ll need for this easy compote recipe is a bit of pomegranate and lime juice.
  • Other flavor options: If you want to personalize your flavors, you can also add in orange zest, lemon zest, mint or your favorite liqueur!

How to make Mixed Berry Compote

  1. Combine ingredients: First mix all the berries, pomegranate juice and lime juice into a small saucepan.
  2. Simmer: Then bring the mixture to a simmer and cook for about 10 minutes, or until the mixed berry compote has thickened. Make sure to stir occasionally while simmering.
  3. Mash berries: Next stir and mash the fruit with the back of your spoon.
  4. Enjoy: Finally, serve this mixed berry compote with french toast, cheesecake, pancakes, ice cream, toast, waffles or, my personal favorite, Greek yogurt. The possibilities are endless!

Tips for making the perfect Mixed Berry Compote

  • Use overripe berries: This berry compote recipe is perfect if you have berries that have just gotten a bit too mushy for your taste.
  • Freeze for later: Mixed berry compote will last about 2 weeks in the fridge, but if you want to keep some around longer, you can always freeze it! I recommend pouring the compote into jars, then sealing while it is still hot. The compote will last in the freezer for up to 2 months.
  • Give as a gift: Speaking of storing this compote recipe in jars — you can easily use cute mason jars with a personalized lid or tag and give as gifts. With so many ways to enjoy this berry compote, it’s a thoughtful gift that won’t collect dust on a shelf.
