I love this compote; it’s super versatile and I almost always have the ingredients on hand.  We’ve talked a couple of times about yogurt here in recent weeks, and this is a fantastic and natural way to sweeten up plain yogurt for a treat.  It’s also a great topping for steel cut oats or whole grain waffles (like these).

Frozen Fruit Compote
  • 1 lb frozen fruit (I like berries and peaches best)
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • A couple of tablespoons lemon juice

Place all ingredients in a medium saucepan give it a couple stirs to combine.  Place over medium-high heat on your stovetop.

After a few minutes the liquid will seep out of the fruit and the mixture will become quite watery.  Once it reaches a boil, lower the heat to medium.
Keep cooking at medium heat for about 10 minutes; it may be more or less depending on the size of your fruit chunks.  Stir every couple of minutes to keep the mixture from sticking to the bottom of the pan.

Once the mixture thickens up and coats your spoon, reduce the heat to low and simmer for a couple more minutes.  It doesn’t have to cook down entirely, this will continue to firm up as it cools.

Remove from heat and let cool entirely before you put it in a jar.  This compote will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for about two weeks.

This looks really great! Thank you taking the time to share this recipe! I recently got a new blender and have been looking for a good way to really break it in!

This is a very interesting and really delicious looking recipe. However, I was wondering why the fruits need to be frozen before hand? Does this allow for a slower process as the juices seep out of the berries?
