Easy Blueberry Compote

IMG_4558.JPG

Lately I've been putting berry compote on ALL the things...yogurt bowls, in place of jelly on sandwiches, waffles, pancakes, by the spoonful. Yum! Berries are naturally low in sugar, so they make a great replacement for sugary alternatives. This is almost too simple to be called a recipe, and takes minimal effort! 

Directions: 

Take 1 pound of organic frozen berries (or fresh when they are in season), put them in a pot with 2 TB maple syrup or raw honey, put the pot on the stove, and simmer for 20-30 minutes. If you have a lemon on hand, the juice from a lemon will help bring out the flavor even more. I know, I know, I’ve really outdone myself with this one. In my opinion though, the simpler, the better! It doesn’t have to be complicated!
