Strawberry Compote Sauce 07

I have a super yummy and easy recipe to share with you. You only need six (possibly five) ingredients, so it’s simple too.

The strawberries in my refridgerator were reaching their final days so they needed to be used. Plus, I had recently picked raspberries and those needing to be eaten. I decided to mix the two and make a compote or sauce to top my breakfast pancakes.

Strawberry Compote Sauce

Ingredients:

  • 1 lbs. Strawberries (sliced or cubed)
  • 1 cup of raspberries
  • 1 lemon (zest and juiced)
  • 1 tbsp. corn starch (optional)
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1/4 cup of water

How to make the compote | sauce:

1. In a small pot over medium heat combine water, sugar and corn starch – mix until dissolved, then add the lemon zest and juice. Stir for a few minutes until you see a slight boil.

2. Add the berries and continue to stir until all ingredients come to a boil.

3. Turn the head down to low and stir. Let the berries cook for at least 10 to 15 minutes. Allow the sauce to cool for a few minutes before serving.

 

The sauce | compote can be served with pancakes, waffles, French toast, ice cream or anything your little heart desires.
