  • 3 ½ cups Mixed Berries (Fresh or Frozen)
  • 3 Tbsp. Brown Sugar
  • ½ Lemon (Juiced, about 2 Tbsp.)
  • Optional: Ground Cinnamon, Ground Ginger, Star Anise Pods or Vanilla Essence/Paste to taste


  • If using fresh berries, wash and remove the stems if required.
  • Place the Mixed Berries, Lemon Juice and Brown Sugar in a small pot and stir to combine. Turn on the stove on low heat, and leave to cook for 5 minutes with the lid on.
  • Remove the lid and leave to cook for another 10 to 15 minutes. The fruits should have reduced but still be chunky.
  • Let the compote cool for 5 minutes, then transfer into a sealed jar. Keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks or in the freezer in a plastic container or freezing bag for a few months.
