Stewed Fruit Compote

In the Central and Eastern Europe people like to boil stewed fruits making the drink called Stewed Fruit Compote. Normally you would include a lot of different berries such as black and red currants, blueberries, blackberries, gooseberries, raspberries & strawberries.

People drink it in the winter when it is hard to find fresh berries. When you open a jar you immediately feel the freshness and the rich taste of vitamins. In summer, what can be better than a jar of stewed fruit compote with 2 or 3 pieces of ice?!

Firstly, I found some blueberries and blackberries in our fridge. I placed the casserole with water on fire and waited until the water started to boil. Lastly, I dropped the berries into the casserole and added sugar. When the berries coloured the water, I waited for another two minutes and poured everything into the two jars. Voila!

This Stewed Fruit Compote recipe is all about gorgeous taste, wonderful colour and simple presentation! We enjoyed our jars and so will you if you try to make it yourself!

Bon appétit!

Please do, Tina 🙂 There is a review section on this page where I would be very happy to see the photos of your compote. In fact, I can’t wait to see someone else make it!

Hi,

here in Poland where I’m from we drink it almost everyday 🙂 When I was kid I remember when my grandma was preparing fruit compote for me and my cousins and that was the best drink I have ever had 🙂
So compote is not only good but also reminds me of a good times 🙂

Best,
Kasia Walkow

Hi Kasia – thank you for sharing your experience. Compote is great, particularly for the countries with cold winters because it is the way to have fruits even when everything outside is covered with snow!

I agree, this recipe looks delicious, and carefully done. Thanks for your generous thought of sharing us your recipe.

Omg. I love fruit compote, but I have never tried to make it myself. I really need to get on this, and make some homemade waffles as well. It would be perfect!

To be honest, when I read the title, I was like oh another complex drink to make! But wow! This is actually so easy and I just read up on the benefits on google and it really does your body good! Will have to make it tomorrow! Coincidently, asked my husband to bring in a selection of berries so this will work a treat!

Yes, it could. Apricots, for example, or cherries. Usually we make it from every type of fruit that is available at a certain time so that when winter comes, you have something to choose from! 🙂 By the way, I think that your $20 dresses idea is fire!
