Early blackberry treats, part 3… Compote

August 26, 2010

So finally when I still have half a punnet of blackberries and I could not (neither could my waistline) face anymore sweet treats I decided to just reduce them down into a compote… this is great for drizzling and glooping on anything you like, ice cream, yogurt, granola etc and it keeps for a good few weeks…

It’s so so simple to make as well…

You need;
250g blackberries
50g golden caster sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract or 1 pod

Put the blackberries and sugar into a small pan with 100ml water.
Bring to the boil, then simmer for 5 mins until the fruit is soft.
Stir in the vanilla, remove and cool a little.

If you want more of a coulis then you could blend this mix, but I loved it with the whole blackberries in.

I drizzled mine over ice cream… so easy and yum!
