Do you know how to pronounce the word, “Compote?”
Well…I didn’t for the longest time. Like until just 5 minutes ago. Sigh.
I knew how to cook a compote and what it was and that I liked it on my pancakes. But actually pronouncing it?
Not so much.
At restaurants, I would kind of mumble or slur my words so as not to give away I didn’t know how to say it.
Sad, I know.
And I probably wasn’t even fooling anyone. Ah well.
The thing is: I have a wonderful and easy peasy Blueberry Compote recipe I wanted to share but I felt I couldn’t post the recipe unless I knew how to pronounce the word accurately.
I know. I know. You would’ve never even known I couldn’t pronounce it if I hadn’t said anything.
But I had to come clean. It had been too long!
I feel much better now, so thank you very much.
In fact, I even found a website that pronounces words for you. So if you don’t know how to pronounce “compote” either, just click on over here.
No one will ever know…
**Cough** No judging. **Cough**
As for this tasty Blueberry Compote, I highly suggest you try it out this weekend for breakfast…over some pancakes, waffles, oatmeal or french toast. Shoot…I like it by the spoonful.
Who are we kidding here?
Check out this video to see just how crazily easy this compote is to make. And, yes, to say as well.
Easy Blueberry Compote
- 2 cups frozen blueberries, divided
- 3 tbsp. water
- 2½ tbsp. honey
- ¼ tsp. ground cinnamon
- ½-1 tsp. fresh lemon juice (optional)
- Pour half the blueberries (1 cup) into a medium sauce pan and set aside the remaining 1 cup. Add the water, honey and cinnamon and cook over medium-high heat. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and cook for an additional 10 minutes. ]
- After 10 minutes, gently smash the blueberries against the pan using a wooden or plastic spatula. Add the remaining blueberries and cook for an additional 5-6 minutes to heat through.
- Add lemon juice, if desired, to taste. (This will make the blueberry flavor pop a little bit more but isn't necessary.)
- Serve warm.
