Berry Compote

This compote is so deliciously simple. Three ingredients: tart strawberries and blueberries contrasted by rich honey.

Compote keeps for a few days in an airtight container in the fridge. It is different from jam in that way, and it is so much easier! Here is how to make it:

Ingredients (serves two):

5 strawberries

2 handfuls of blueberries (switch the fruit for any you happen to have!)

1 spoonful of honey

Cooking:

Pick out the strawberries and blueberries you want, and cut the strawberries into fourths, depending on how large they are.  I left a few smaller ones whole, to add texture and variation. Turn the stove to medium and stir fry the berries and honey for around 8 minutes, then on medium-low for 1-2 minutes. The fruit should be semi-broken down.

These are the berries after only a few minutes on the stove.

Once the consistency is to your liking, top anything from toast to ice-cream or my oatmeal with this compote!
