RECIPE : Berry Compote

Hey!  This is the very first homemade recipe that I posted on my humble site and to be completely honest with you, I really have nothing interesting to say about this berry compote recipe.  I wish I had some great story about how I was wandering around a forest and I stumbled upon some wild berry bushes and I decided to gather a bunch as my ancestors did, but… I did not.  I stumbled into Trader Joe’s, walked over to the frozen fruit section and put two bags in my cart.  But give me a break here… I live in New York City and it’s a freezing day in the middle of  January!  The only wild berries to pick around here are my two mutts’ dingleberries!  Oops…  That was a pretty gross joke.  Sorry about that!

Annnyyway… So without further ado, the recipe for this delicious berry compote, everyone.

 

Ingredients

  • 4 cups frozen mixed berries of your choice (I used strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries)
  • 3/4 cup organic sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 1/2 tbsp corn starch

Directions

  • put the frozen berries, sugar and water into a small pot and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally until berries are soft and tender
  • add the cornstarch and mix well together to thicken the compote
  • move to a bowl and enjoy while it’s warm!
