It is getting in to berry season. However, they can still be pricy. Frozen berries can be a great option in this senario. I have a slow cooker berry compote today that uses frozen mixed berries.
This compote includes ingredients you would usually use for a version on the stove top. There is frozen mixed berries, sugar, water and cornstarch. This recipe also utilizes the zest and juice of one orange. It compliments the berries very well and add a nice fresh bright flavor to it.
The great thing about this recipe is you can put the berries, sugar, orange juice and zest in the slow cooker. You can leave it in the slow cooker for 2 hours and not wory about it. Then you mix the cornstarch and water together. You mix in in the berry mixture and then give it another 15 minutes in the slow cooker.
Now once you have this wonderful warm slow cooker berry compote, there are serveral ways you can use it. It works on just about any breakfast items. You can put it on waffles, pancakes, crepes, french toast, oatmeal yogurt,etc. You can also use it for dessert to serve on top of cake or cheesecake. It is also excellent as an ice cream topping.
