Blueberry Compote

This blueberry compote is one of my favourite quick and easy kitchen tricks to whip up when something is in need of a sweet kick. It can be added to granola bowls, mixed with yoghurt, drizzled on banana bread or my favourite at the moment in chilly Melbourne is to add a dollop on top of a warm bowl of porridge. A simple way to add some additional fibre and nutrients to your diet.

This can be prepared and stored in the fridge for 2-3 days or can be quickly whipped up as needed. The best thing about it is that there are only 3 ingredients!

Ingredients:

2 cups of fresh or frozen blueberries (I use frozen)

1tsp maple syrup/honey

1-2tbsp water

Utensils:

Wooden spoon

Small pot

Method

Add the blueberries, sweetener of choice and 1tbsp of water to a pot over a medium heat.

Continue to gently stir over medium heat for 10-15 mins, adding the second tbsp of water if necessary (this may not be necessary if using frozen berries).

The blueberries will break down slowly into a lovely glossy compote.

Leave cool to a warm temperature before adding to your porridge or banana bread. Or cool completely before adding to yoghurt or granola bowls.

Leftovers can be put in a sterilised jar and stored in the fridge for 2-3 days.
