So simple to make. Quick and delicious … and you can adapt it to whatever fruits you have lying around.
- 1 cups frozen berries*
- 1 medium apple or pear, finely diced
- Lemon peel (peel into strips for easy removal)
- 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
- Optional: 1-2 tsp maple syrup
*if you are using fresh berries and not frozen, you’ll need to add a little splash of water when you first start cooking.
Place all ingredients into a small saucepan and turn on to a low heat.
Stir regularly until the juices from the berries release.
Allow the mix to come to a simmer and then leave to a very gentle simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Leave the saucepan partially covered with the lid to stop it splattering!
It is ready when you can very easily slide a fork through the apple and the juices in the pan are becoming thick and sticky.
Remove the lemon peel and if you want a smoother compote, use a potato masher to crush down the fruit.
Thermo Cooking instructions:
Place all ingredients into a bowl and turn on to Speed 2, 100C. For about 10-12 minutes.
Remove the lemon peel. If you want smoother compote, turn off heating, increase speed to 4, in 5 second bursts until you are happy with the texture, scraping down the sides as required.
Serve warm on cakes, scones or pancakes, or allow to cool and serve with yoghurt, custard or ice cream … or just eat it on it’s own!!
