Ingredients

  • 430g (3 cups) Mixed Berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries etc)
  • 2 tbsp Fresh Orange Juice
  • Zest of half an orange
  • ½ tsp Cinnamon
  • tsp Ground Ginger

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients to a saucepan and bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally
  • Once bubbling, reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 mins, stirring occasionally. Mash fruit as it simmers, to desired consistency.
  • Remove from heat and allow to cool before storing in the refrigerator.

Notes

FRUIT: You can use fresh or frozen fruit.
THICKEN: If you prefer a thicker compote then remove the cooked compote from the heat and add 1 tbsp of chia seeds. Stir through and allow to thicken. 
SWEETEN: If you find that your fruit is particularly tart you can add approx 1 tbsp of sugar as the berries simmer or a drizzle of maple syrup (Do not add sugar/sweetener if making for under 2s)
