Blueberry Compote




A fruit topping made with fresh blueberries, perfect over ice cream, rice pudding, or mousse, just use your imagination.

This morning I made homemade crepes topped with blueberry compote and it was delicious! I love to make compote with fresh berries like blueberries, blackberries or raspberries to serve over crepes, whole wheat pancakes, waffles, or oatmeal.

    8. How is it 1/2 point for a tbsp if using splenda? Aren't fresh blueberries only 1 point a cup or something???

    9. Thanks for noticing! I just checked again, it's 0 points if you make it with Splenda, 1 point with sugar.

    10. Made these this morning for my hubby...what a hit! I did the blueberry compote with the 1pt (prob 2pt on pts+??) crespelles. I had plenty left over from last nights dinner of your manicotti- which was also fabulous! Had to make 2 batches of the crespelles till I got the hang of it. You are awesome, Gina! Please keep these great recipes coming! :) Andi

    11. This was absolutely delicious on your whole wheat pancakes (the new and improved version)! I made a double batch and froze half of it. I can't wait to try it with raspberries and blackberries too... I see a trip to the fruit market in my near future!

    12. I have to admit, I panicked a bit while making it. I realized while cooking it that I didn't understand what "becomes thick and sticks to the spoon" truly meant. 30 minutes later on the stove, my compote was clumpy (should I have pureed it instead of using the chop feature on the blender?) and somewhat thick, but still liquidy.

      Anyway, I don't think any of that mattered because regardless it tasted FABULOUS! In fact, I froze it and reheated it this morning smothered it all over your recipe for the Whole Wheat Pancakes.

      Love it, love it - thank you for sharing!

    13. I used blackberries and strawberries instead of the blueberries and added some lemon zest. It's amazing! I put it on non fat greek yogurt and add a sprinkle of low fat granola for a super good breakfast. Yum!

    15. I wonder if you could make this with agave nectar and eliminate the water and sugar?

    16. My mom made your Whole Wheat Blueberry pancakes topped with this compote for my dad for Father's Day brunch and they were a HUGE hit! I've tried a couple of your recipes and they earn rave reviews each and every time! Thanks for the wonderful recipes!

    18. Yummy! I used this to top the Lemon Cheesecake Yogurt Cups since I had blueberries and no blackberries. Per my husband (a chef), both recipes were great, but I used too much of the compote on the cheesecakes. His suggestion was to maybe double or triple the cheesecake recipe and then spread the compote among them. Of course, that may be because he wants to eat all of them.
