Vegan MoFo Day XXVI : Simple Cinnamon-Berry (or apple) Compote

The other day I found myself with some left-over berries when I made the Berry Scuffins, and whenever I have some berries to spare, I make some simple berry compote because it only takes about 15 minutes and it’s so yummy.  I enjoy adding some cinnamon because it’s so warming, even a little ginger, perfect as the mornings grow chilly.  You can use the same formula with any fruit you’d like (or is in season).

Simple Cinnamon (your fruit here) Compote

About 500 grams fruit – a cup or two, depending on your fruit, chopped up small for larger fruits.

1 tsp cinnamon (opt)

1/2 tsp ginger (opt)

50 g/2 tbsp agave

Put your fruit in a small saucepan over medium, until it’s just bubbling, then add the agave and spices.  Lower heat and continue to leat steam for about 15 minutes, stirring from time to time.

I love this compote on pancakes, scones, yogurt – you name it.

Our drawing winners will be announced on November 30th, the last day of Vegan MoFo. Good luck!

  1. I just made something almost identical last night–with leftover raspberries and blueberries. And if I’d only been on top of my Google Reader, I could have used your recipe! 😉

  2. Mhmm compote! When I was in Australia I used to make a quick berry compote in the microwave every morning to eat it with oatmeal – the best way to start the day! 🙂

  3. Berry compotes are sooooo good on just about everything! I usually make them plain, but next time I’ll follow your lead and try spicing them up a bit for a change. Yum!
