Fruit compote is a healthier and more refreshing version of jam and a great way to liven up anything from English muffins to pancakes. I used strawberries in this recipe but the fruit component can be substituted with a variety of fruits, such as plums, raspberries, blackberries or blueberries. Many compotes are made with sugar, however I opted for a healthier version made with honey.


Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10-15 minutes
Total Time: 15-20 minutes

Servings: About 1 cup of compote

1 ½ cups strawberries, halved

4. Let simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
5. Remove from heat.
6. Store compote in the fridge for a maximum of 2-3 days.
