Blueberry Compote Sauce

Blueberry sauce/ compote is flavourful and refreshing with minimum effort. This beautiful purplish-blue, thick sauce can transform even the simplest dessert into a special occasion dessert. This sauce can be used as a topping or filling for a cheesecake or can be added to ice creams, cake mix, layered custard or any dessert. Since the blueberry season is so short, you can make it in a big batch and preserve it in a freezer for later use. Alternatively, you can also use frozen berries for this recipe.

Shelf life: at least 2-3 weeks in the fridge and 6 months in the freezer.

Gets ready in just 15 minutes.

  • ½ teaspoon – fresh orange zest (Optional)

  3. Keep stirring the mix until the sauce is thick. Turn off the flame and let it cool completely before storing or serving.
