TWO BERRY COMPOTE
Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 10 minutes
This berry compote recipe will be your new favorite go-to for desserts, spooned over pancakes, on biscuits, or drizzled over ice cream. Delicious served hot or cold; keep some in the fridge or make it in a flash. Makes any recipe a little more elegant and you can even use frozen fruit if you must.
1 cup fresh strawberries, raspberries, or blackberries
1 cup fresh blueberries
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
¼ teaspoon lemon zest
¼ cup Chambord liqueur (crème de cassis will also work)
Put the sugar into a saucepan over medium heat for about one minute or until the sugar begins to melt slightly. (Watch it because it will burn quickly!) Add the fruit, lemon juice and zest and toss to coat. Increase the heat slightly and cook and stir for 2 minutes until the sugar is melted and the fruit has broken down slightly. Remove from the heat. Stir in the liqueur. Carefully return to the heat and cook 1 minute more. Allow to cool slightly before using. Will keep up to a week in the refrigerator.
