Blueberry Compote

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…

Recipe type: Easy
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 2 cups frozen blueberries, divided
  • 3 tbsp. water
  • 2½ tbsp. honey
  • ¼ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ½-1 tsp. fresh lemon juice (optional)
Instructions
  1. 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. ]
  2. 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.
  3. Add lemon juice, if desired, to taste. (This will make the blueberry flavor pop a little bit more but isn't necessary.)
  4. Serve warm.

    I tried this the other day, and I used the compote to make a blueberry cobbler (my first cobbler ever). And my family loved it! It was so good!
    Now I’m trying it with come canned peaches as well, and a little of the peach syrup. I also added a couple sprinkles of ground ginger.
    Here’s hoping!

    Sounds good! I am looking to swirl this into mini cheesecakes so I think I will cut out the honey so it isn’t too sweet and maybe less water? I don’t know I will make it as you have listed and work from there. I can’t wait to try this on waffles too! I just found this site from a google search. Seems like a great site. Oh and I’m certainly going to use that site from now on when I need to know how to say a word lol. Thanks :-)

      Hi Adrienne! I’m so glad you found this site. Welcome :)

      Your idea of swirling it into a mini cheesecake sounds amazing. Yes, I’d recommend reducing the liquid since you’ll want it to be a swirl. Best of luck!
