WHAT IS COMPOTE?
Compote is a textured sauce or chunky syrup that is made with pieces of fresh or frozen fruit and some sugar, cooked temporarily on the stove. Honey or maple syrup can also be used in place of sugar for a natural sweetener.
Compote is not as thick as jam or jelly, and it’s meant to be consumed relatively soon after it’s made, but its fresh taste can be preserved in a refrigerator for up to two weeks! Any longer
It’s not designed to be canned or preserved for super long periods of time, but it’s so easy to make that it doesn’t need to be – you can make a bunch fairly easily the months or years ahead. Compote is so easy to make that you can throw together a batch at a moment’s notice!
