A fruit compote is such an easy way to turn a dessert or savory dish into a showstopper.
Cherry Ginger Compote
- 1/2 cup frozen fruit
- 1 Tbsp sugar or other sweetener
- 2 tsps lemon juice or other citrus
- 2 pinches salt
- 2 tsps fresh grated ginger your choice of spice s (1/8-1/4 tsp)
- 2 tsps tapioca starch optional for thicker sauce
Cut bigger pieces of fruit in half or quarters to about 1/2."
Place all of the ingredients in small pot over medium-high heat. Stir and bring to a simmer.
Use a wood spoon or spatula to smash the fruit a little.
Simmer for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
If you want a thicker sauce, mix the tapioca starch with 2 tsp cold water and stir into the compote. Continue stirring until thickened.
Taste. Adjust flavors accordingly. If it's a little blah, add a pinch of salt and sweet and another teaspoon of citrus. Too sweet? Add a pinch of salt and some citrus juice.
