fruit compote (no sugar added)

Compote–a dish of stewed fruit–is great with things like low-fat yogurt, pancakes, waffles, etc. This version of fruit compote, is 100% fruit and eschews the traditional sugar syrup. It’s exceedingly easy and uses raisins to enhance the natural sweetness of the main ingredient. I have formulated the recipe to use frozen fruit, since it’s so convenient to keep on hand, but you could certainly use fresh fruit too!

This recipe was originally published on my other blog, Pragmatic Cooking.

Makes around 2 cups

  • 1 1/2 lbs frozen berries
  • 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 the fruit compote immediately or cool it completely and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to several days.
