A rich, berry 'soup' ideal to accompany pancakes, topping for ice cream, a spoonful alongside a baked cheesecake... the choices are limitless!
Place sugar and water in saucepan & bring to a simmer.
Cook for around 5 minutes, until bubbles get 'syrupy' (medium to large)
Add fresh (or defrosted) berries and stone fruit, if you're using them.
Simmer for 2-3 minutes.
Remove from heat and allow to cool.
This is best made when berries are getting towards the end of their season.
Blueberries, strawberries, boysenberries, raspberries make excellent compotes.
Creative Gourmet also (conveniently) package and freeze a variety of berries which are great if you want the flavour out of season!
