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!
Place a casserole with water on fire and wait until the water starts to boil.
