Blueberries are a warm-weather favorite at our house. When the summer comes, their prices drop, and if you live near a blueberry farm, you can pick them yourself! A great way to use blueberries (other than eating them freshly picked, of course), is to make a super simple, easy blueberry compote out of them.
Compote can be used as a topping for many things like ice cream, french toast, pancakes, or waffles, cheesecake, and so much more! Sometimes I eat the compote all by itself. Yep. It is that good.
It only requires just a few simple ingredients and just ten minutes to make. Before the summer is over, you just have to make this easy blueberry compote.
This is a great way to use up blueberries that are beginning to soften. You can also use this to create a dessert with less sugar and carbs.
It’s the perfect, light, summer dessert for a special occasion or any day of the week! I like to make it in advance, and store it in a jar in the fridge to make breakfast a little extra special one morning. It can take pancakes from boring to fancy in no time at all.
