Blueberry Compote

━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━ 

Compote is one of my favorite ways to use any fresh fruit. It’s a great alternative to blueberry syrup or jam, made with simple ingredients, and can have as much or as little sugar as you want!

INGREDIENTS 

1. 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberrie 2. 1/2 cup granulated sugar (adjust according to taste) 3. 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice 4. 1 teaspoon lemon zest 5. 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

INSTRUCTIONS

Ensure you have all the necessary ingredients ready: fresh or frozen blueberries, granulated sugar, fresh lemon juice, lemon zest, and vanilla extract.

━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━ 

Step 1

In a saucepan, combine the blueberries and granulated sugar over medium heat. Stir gently to coat the blueberries evenly with the sugar. Allow the mixture to sit for a few minutes until the sugar begins to dissolve.

Step 2

Squeeze the fresh lemon juice into the saucepan, and add the lemon zest for an extra burst of citrus flavor. Stir the mixture well, ensuring the ingredients are thoroughly combined.

Step 3

Bring the blueberry mixture to a gentle simmer over medium-low heat. Let it simmer for about 10-15 minutes, or until the blueberries have softened, and the compote has thickened to your desired consistency. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.

Step 4

Once the blueberry compote has reached your desired thickness, remove the saucepan from heat. Stir in the vanilla extract, giving the compote a final flavorful touch. Allow it to cool slightly before transferring it to a jar or serving dish.
