Fresh Blueberry Compote

Easy Blueberry Compote recipe is super easy to make and tastes just amazing. Mix it with your morning oatmeal or pudding or yogurt, use it as a  topping for pancakes or waffles. Even better, looking for dessert? Top vanilla ice cream with this easy and delicious compote. Does it get any better than this? 😃

Compote is made by cooking fresh or frozen fruit along with a sweetner or juice, and spices are added to create a syrupy and chunky dessert. Natural pectin in the fruit helps it thicken. Basically this is a recipe you can pull together on a whim. Also, it can be adapted to suit whatever fruit is in season.
