Last weekend I bought a bunched of mixed berries to make a coffee cake for a family breakfast that didn't happen....so what to do with all these berries?
French toast and a warm berry compote of course!!
I looked at Pinterest to find some recipe I could follow but wasn't too excited about any. So I combined a few items of my favorite and came up with the following. It was so yummy - tart and tangy but still naturally sweet from the berries (and the maple syrup doesn't hurt either).
2 C. mixed berries
1/2 C orange juice (substitute your favorite juice or water)
1/3 C maple syrup
1 tsp lemon juice
pink of sea salt
Add berries, juice, syrup, and salt into saucepan, on medium heat.
Cover until boiling.
Remove lid and simmer on low 10minutes.
