The addition of a fruity compote can elevate even the simplest dessert.

This blueberry compote with a hint of maple syrup and lemon creates an indulgent deep purple sauce - perfect for drizzling over pancakes, waffles, or creamy desserts for a burst of fruity deliciousness.

  • After about 5 minutes, add the remaining berries and continue to simmer for another 5 minutes or until the sauce has reduced to a syrupy consistency.
