This simple strawberry compote has the consistency of a chunky fruit syrup and will liven up yogurt, oatmeal, scones, and ice cream. It also makes the most delicious topping for crepes! The touch of balsamic gives it a pop of acidity and a deeper flavor. Feel free to mash the berries with a fork or potato masher for a smoother consistency. Refrigerate for up to 1 week.

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine chopped strawberries, sugar, balsamic vinegar, and salt in a saucepan; stir to coat evenly. Let sit until berries have released their juices, about 10 minutes.

  • Bring to a light boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until strawberries are soft and compote has thickened, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly; serve warm or cool. Compote will thicken further as it cools.

Cook's Note:

Cut back the sugar to 1/3 cup if you like things a little less sweet.
