FARM CORNER: Warm Berry Compote



Here’s a recipe for a Warm Berry Compote to add to your berry repertoire. You can serve this compote with cream, ice cream or over biscuits, creating a warm fruit shortcake!



3 pints mixed berries:  strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, red currants, etc.

1/3 cup maple sugar OR maple syrup (using slightly less if syrup)



Place the fruit in a wide noncorrosive skillet or pot over medium-high heat.  Add maple. Cook until the berries are warm, softened and starting to lose their juice (1-2 minutes). Remove from heat and pour into a bowl. As they sit, their juices will come out and the flavors will deepen.
