We love making this Berry Kompot Recipe or Компот in Ukrainian.
Mostly prepared during summer/autumn season, this drink is a fantastic way to get an immune system boost later, when the temperatures go low.
The original berry kompot recipe includes a lot of different berries: black and red currants, blueberries, blackberries, gooseberries, raspberries and strawberries. These berries are boiled until the water gets the color (and all the health benefits, too).
You may also use apples, pears, grapes and other fruits. In addition, you can add honey, sugar or any other sweetener to make it sweet enough if it’s not. Drink it hot or cold – your choice.
We usually drink kompot in winter when it is hard to buy fresh berries. Picture this: it’s cold, there is no fresh produce, you open a secret door to your pantry room, grab a big jar of kompot, open it and immediately feel the freshness and the rich taste of berries.
If you prefer drinking kompot in summer, what can be better than a jar of berry kompot with 2 or 3 pieces of ice?! Plus, you have lots of berries there to chew on, so grab a spoon and dig inside. Yum!
For this recipe, I used some blueberries and blackberries that I found in the fridge. But remember that you can use whatever you’ve got.
