Berry Compote

My family is big on Greek yogurt; my parents believe that yogurt is the best food for the digestive system. While they love eating it straight, my sister and I find it very bitter, leading us to dislike yogurt. So, with help from my mom, we created a great recipe for berry compote. I usually add a spoonful of it on top of my Greek yogurt, vanilla ice cream, and sometimes bread. I hope you enjoy it! 




4 lbs. Mixed Berries

1 Orange

1 Lemon

1 Cinnamon Stick

½ tsp pepper

1 tsp salt

3 cup sugar

2 tbsp. white wine

¼ cup cornstarch

¼ cup water



1. In a large pot, combine all the ingredients, except for the cornstarch and water, at once over high heat. It will take a while for the ingredients to liquify. Bring it to a boil.

2. After boiling, allow it to simmer for 20 minutes. 

3. In a separate small bowl, mix the cornstarch and water to make a paste. 

4. Add the paste into the liquified berries and stir.

5. Bring it to a boil again.

6. After boiling, turn off the heat and allow it to cool to make it thick at room temperature first then the refrigerator if needed. 

7. Store in a mason jar. 

8. Once cooled, serve compote with Greek plain yogurt to make yogurt parfaits or vanilla ice cream.
