Crunchy Berry Compote
If you’re a huge fan of berries like me, then bookmark this recipe. It’s easy, delicious and very versatile. This berry compote can be served warm or cold and can be paired with a variety of food items: toast, muffins, cakes, yogurt parfaits, etc. I added some crunch on the top to play off different textures.
I don’t know about you, but for me the perfect breakfast is always a bread of some kind. a flavorful spread and cream cheese. Best combination ever. And instead of buying an expensive jar, I make my own berry compote. Aside from the simplicity, you can control your desired amount of sweetness. In this case, I used strawberries and raspberries. Both are tart with a hint of sweet.
