Compote–a dish of stewed fruit–is great with things like yogurt, pancakes, waffles, ice cream, etc. This version, 100% fruit compote, eschews the usual sugar syrup. It’s exceedingly easy and uses raisins to enhance the sweetness behind the scenes.
Makes around 2 cups
- 1 1/2 lbs frozen berries or stone fruit (pitted)
- Small handful raisins (2-3 Tbsp)
Put the frozen fruit in a small sauce pan over medium heat. While the fruit is thawing, mince the raisins. Add the raisins to the fruit.
When the fruit has softened and has liquid around it, bring to mixture to a simmer. Cook for about 20 minutes, or until fruit just starts to lose its structure and the liquid thickens slightly.
Remove from heat and either serve your 100% fruit compote immediately or cool and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to several days.
