HOW TO MAKE MIXED BERRY COMPOTE
Ingredients for making mixed berry compote
Typically when making any kind of compote, I add a little bit of citrus juice, whatever I’m flavoring the compote with, like lemon or orange. However, frozen berries tend to contain a lot of extra water, so I skipped the juice in this recipe. I just added the lime zest to brighten up the flavor.

When I make other berry compote, I only add 2 tablespoons and up to 4 tablespoons (same as ¼ cup) max of sweetener per pound of fruits. But I do prefer things a little less sweet, so feel free to adjust the amount of sugar to your taste toward the end of the cooking process if needed.
