Compotes

Following on from my last article . These are the two compotes I made, no guessing which was my fave.
I had it with rice flour pancakes it was yummy-lious. Like Granola the recipe for compote is really easy and can be customised basically any fruit will do but I am not sure about bananas.

Compote recipe

For berry compote

You will need :

All fruits from the berry family or at least 3 if you don’t like a particular berry .
Fruit juice preferably orange or Apple
Cinnamon or any mixed spice

Method

Put your chosen berries in a sauce or pot if making a large quantity.
Add juice of your choice
Cook on the hob on medium heat, bring to boil
Stir occasionally, cook for 10- 15 minutes or until the fruits have turned to a puree.
Leave to  cool then put into jars or tight containers
Refrigerate for 1 to 3 weeks.

Apple compote

You will need :
Eating apples of your choice – peeled, cored and chopped into chunks.
Juice of choice
Cinnamon or mixed choice

Follow the same method as berry compote.

You will notice I didn’t mention sugar that is because the sugar from the juices make up for it.

However, if you don’t like juices or don’t have juice to hand.
Add water with sugar, or sweetener such as honey, agave, xythinol, Stevia, etc.

Compote can be served with not just granola but pancakes or as a desert layered with natural or Greek yogurt.

Granola and compote are ideal as on the go to breakfast or snack, have fun making these fab recipes.
