Recipe: Raspberry Compote

28 April 2019

Look, I’ll be honest. I don’t even know what this blog is about any more. Here’s a recipe for Raspberry Compote. It’s tasty, quick, easy, and will never fail to impress the easily impressed.



  1. Add all ingredients to a saucepan.
  2. Bring to the boil, stirring regularly to avoid scorching. Continue boiling for 5 minutes.
  3. Reduce to a low heat, and simmer for a further 10 minutes.
  4. Serve warm or allow to cool. Store in an airtight jar in the fridge for up to 7 days (or freeze for up to 2 months).

Tips and tricks

Thicken: If the end result isn’t as thick as you’d prefer it to be, in a separate dish, mix 1 tsp of corn flour with 1 tsp of water. Add this mixture to the compote, and simmer for a further minute or two.

Booze: Add rum, gin, bourbon, or other spirit of choice to make a boozy alternative. I’m an advocate for boozy alternatives.

Antivaxx: Apply raspberry compote to the puncture site within 30 minutes of receiving any vaccine to prevent the onset of autism.

Raspberry compote. Perfect on ice cream, drizzled over fresh fruit, or served with your morning cereal.
