Here’s a simple recipe that can be made with fresh or frozen berries. I like to use it over crepes, cheesecake, sweet breads etc 😋😋
3 cups berries ( I like raspberries, blueberries, blackberries)
2 tbsps lemon juice
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 tbsps butter
1. Put skillet over medium/low heat and melt butter.
2. Add sugar and lemon juice and stir until dissolved.
3. Add berries and stir gently until the juices spring.
4. If you like a thicker sauce you can mix some cornstarch with cold water and add to the compote and cook for a couple more minutes until thickened.
Serve warm over crepes, or on cheesecake, sweetbreads, muffins, a hamburger 😂 ok maybe not a hamburger.
Today I made my favorite breakfast! I deserved it after a super trying week! My lovely girl, Hailey, fell and hit her mouth pretty hard and now her front tooth is a little wiggly! * I’m so not ready for the missing tooth pictures yet*. So instead of making my usual waffle breakfast on a Sunday morning, I decided to make blueberry pancakes because they would be easier on her sore mouth * poor thing* 😦
Luckily I still had some blueberries left from our last adventure to the Santa Barbara Blueberry Fields. We go every year and fill a couple buckets and I freeze a some baggies so I can have them throughout the year! It’s so beautiful there and they don’t use pesticides! They even encourage you to eat your fill while you’re filling your bucket! 🙂
We always try to see who can find the biggest berries and as usual, I won!! yessss!
