Nectarine and blackberry compote


I was lucky enough to pick up some very ripe nectarines at the market and had some of the last of my foraged wild blackberries left so decided to make a quick compote.

This is so easy – simply dice the nectarines (leaving the skins on) and add to a large pan. Add the blackberries. You can use whatever quantity you have – I used about 6 nectarines and 3 large handfuls of blackberries. If the fruit is very ripe you shouldn’t need anything more but if necessary add a tbsp or 2 of water. You can also add a small amount of unrefined sugar if you need – personally I don’t think it needs it.

Simmer on a medium heat until the fruit is tender. Stir often. You may find that the fruit produces a lot of liquid. You can continue to simmer to boil some of this off but if it’s still very liquid then simply drain some off. Whatever you do don’t throw the excess juice away – you can drink it or pop it in a smoothie!

Once the fruit is tender remove from the heat and pour in to a sterilised jar. This will keep for a few weeks in the fridge.

Enjoy on some porridge, with soya yoghurt or just on its own!
