How to make Strawberry compote

A colorful fruit sauce that can complement many dishes with sweet and sour tastes

Strawberry compote is a flavorful fresh fruit topping that can enhance a dessert by complementing it with a flavourful sweet and sour taste. Strawberry compote can be a perfect complement for pancakes, bread toasts, cake toppings, crepes,  ice cream, yogurt, whipped cream, waffles, french toast, or cheesecake.

The bright red color of the strawberry compote is a feast to the eyes. This recipe can be adapted to different types of fruits like blueberries, grapes, or peaches. The secret to making a perfect fruit compote lies in the ripe fruits that are fresh and fragrant. It is also important to maintain the right balance of sugar and fruit quantities in order to get the right consistency.

I have used the following ingredients for the Strawberry compote :

  1. Fresh strawberries
  2. Granulated sugar
  3. Lemon juice
  4. Cinnamon stick & Cloves ( optional)

The process involves bringing the fruit and sugar mixture to a boil until all the sugar has melted and fruit pieces have completely softened.   We can prepare the strawberry compote in advance and store it for a few days in the refrigerator.
