Fast Berry Compote

DSC_0204.jpg

Summer is quickly drawing to a close, kids are heading back to school, fall sweaters are starting to creep into stores and late summer produce is at it's peak! 

Sweet peaches, juicy blackberries and tart strawberries are slowly simmered with orange zest and a cinnamon stick. The result is a delightful sweet and tart bowl of warm goodness that is open to any possibility! I put it on plain Greek yogurt for a light dessert or on my morning oatmeal for a bright pop of flavor. 

There is no limit to what you can put this compote on! Frozen yogurt, toast, or put some crumbled granola on top for a fast fruit crumble. 

Enjoy!
