Berry Compote Topping

Cheesecake with Berry Compote Topping
I found this specifically for the Cheesecake recipe of mine, but have used it on pancakes, crepes, and about 10 other things. It's just a great, sweet topping for food that is easy to make and quite versatile.


3 cups berries
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup orange juice
1 tsp. vanilla (optional)
1/4 tsp. cinnamon (optional)


Mash up fruit using a potato masher or a blender on low speed. Combine all ingredients in a small sauce pan and simmer over medium heat for 15 minutes, or until thick. Serve hot or cold, depending on the food.


*If you want the topping to be more even in consistency, blend or mash thoroughly before simmering.
*Depending on the heat, the simmering process can take up to 25 minutes or as short as 10. Just make sure you stir occasionally so the bottom doesn't burn.
