Apple and blackberry compote
This apple and blackberry compote is a healthy topping for oatmeal or desserts, made simply with four ingredients.
Servings: 1.5 cups
- 3 small apples cored, peeled and diced
- 1 cup blackberries
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
Spoon the butter into the pan and heat on low so it melts to a liquid. Add the apples, blackberries and maple syrup. Stir well to combine.
Increase the heat to a very light simmer, and cook the fruit for 12-15 minutes until softened. Stir occasionally and if you like the blackberries to break down, press them against the side of the pan with a wooden spoon to help them along.
