Author Notes

This compote makes a great addition to breakfast, brunch or dessert. The berries are fresh, warm and meld together perfectly in their tart sweet juices. Top pancakes, biscuits, scones, ice cream and short cake. // Refrigerate leftovers and spread on your morning toast. —Courtney Elizabeth
