Why Make Compote In Instant Pot
Why not? This compote takes three minutes cook time and you have a broken down and sweet blend of mixed berries ready for you. I love how simple and hands off the approach is, instead of monitoring it over a stove top as it cooks.
Can You Use Frozen Fruit Instead of Fresh For Instant Pot Compote
Yes, you are welcome to use either. I prefer the flavor of fresh but frozen can work as well. I have used fresh fruit from the garden that I froze and used and it works. Toss it in frozen and then cook it just like that, no need to thaw the fruit first. You will have more of a chunky texture with fresh fruit over frozen.
What Is The Difference Between Compote And Jam
A compote uses a mixture or one single fruit that is cooked in a syrup (or in this recipe honey) and cooked until it breaks down. You will find the fruit stays chunky. Then you serve over pancakes, waffles, granola, etc. Jam is a thicker texture that offers a jelly-texture. Either is delicious.
How To Thicken Compote
You can add in some chia seeds to help thicken the berry compote. After you finish cooking it and it cools if it doesn’t fit the consistency you want, feel free to sprinkle in chia seeds to help thicken it up.
How To Use Fresh Berry Compote
