Mixed Berry Compote

A wonderfully healthy and delicious topping for your favorite breakfast, dessert, or (best of all) ice cream!

I’ve found so many uses for this deliciously simple, and simply delicious mixed berry compote! Whether it’s used to top off a bowl of ice cream, drizzle over a favorite cake, or added to your favorite pudding or trifle, this fruit topping makes nearly everything taste better.

This compote would also be a wonderful substitute for maple syrup on a stack of pancakes… But I’d have to say that my favorite use for it is spooned over a warm generous slice of Baked French Toast Casserole

No matter what, when it comes to breakfast or dessert, you can’t go wrong with the addition of this healthy and delicious treat. 

Mixed berry compote is extremely simple to make, and I guarantee that once you get a taste of homemade fruit compote, you’ll never go back to store-bought again! 

This recipe calls for three easy ingredients: A 1 lb. bag of frozen mixed berries… pretty much any combination will work, although my favorite go-to is raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries. You will also need either the zest of one lemon or one tablespoon of fresh lemon juice. This recipe is very forgiving, so if you find yourself in a pinch, you can definitely use store-bought lemon juice. The third ingredient is regular granulated sugar.

Add your frozen berries, sugar, and lemon zest or juice to a medium saucepan and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture comes to a rapid boil. Reduce heat to medium and continue to cook, stirring regularly, until the mixture begins to thicken and reduce in volume. This will take about 15 minutes. 

Remove the pan from heat, allow the compote to cool, and transfer it to a jar. That’s it!!
