Berry and Apple Compote
Maryse Chevriere

We've all heard it enough times to know that breakfast is an extremely important meal. However, kickstarting the day with something nutritious doesn't have to be bland or boring. This fruit compote is deceptively simple and equally delicious. 

Try topping your oatmeal or cream of wheat with a spoonful or spreading some on a low-fat muffin. Brighten up your favorite yogurt by swirling in a scoop of compote — think of it as homemade "fruit on the bottom." 

Make this recipe your own by switching up the fruit combinations and adding in dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

  • 2 cups fresh blueberries, pricked with a fork
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, quartered
  • 2 apples (I used Braeburns), cored and chopped into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons simple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons applesauce
  • ¼ cup water
  • Juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon


Add everything except the lemon zest to a medium saucepan over medium heat. When the liquid starts to boil add the zest, reduce the heat to low and cover the pan. Simmer the mixture for 1 hour until the fruit is broken down, and the sauce is thick and syrupy. 

Serve immediately or store in the fridge for up to a week.
