What Are Compotes Used For?

A fresh fruit compote is a fruit sauce usually made by cooking fresh berries with a few tablespoons of sugar and something acidic, like lemon juice. The fruit breaks down and forms a nice syrupy, chunky, sweet sauce that is the perfect topping because it can be used so many different ways.

Some compotes are seasoned with spices. Others even use a little bit of liquor to add flavor, but, the alcohol is cooked off. Thinking of Bananas Foster makes my mouth water!

Great Recipes For Breakfast: Compote is a great substitute for maple syrup and whipped cream on breakfast items. Try it on top of pancakes, French toast, waffles and oatmeal.

Great Dessert Ideas: Quick blueberry and simple strawberry compotes are popular toppings for pound cake and angel food cake as well as ice cream and thick Greek yogurt which are great gluten free camping food options for dessert.

Recipe Prep

You’ll need about a cup of chopped strawberries and two sliced bananas for this recipe so the prep is really easy to do right at the campsite.


Cooking Methods & Equipment

The cooking is so fast, I usually just make this compote as one of our camp stove recipes and use a regular sauce pan. An RV stove or conventional stove are fine too.

I wouldn’t start a fire just to make this fast recipe, but if you already have a campfire going or will be making other things over it, use a cast iron skillet or other heavy duty cookware to make this as one of our easy campfire recipes.


Recipe Steps

Step 1. Prepare your ingredients, heat source and equipment as directed.

Step 2. Melt butter. Place a medium saucepan or skillet over medium heat, then, add the butter and let it melt.

Step 3. Add remaining ingredients & bring to boil. Once the butter is melted, add the sugar, salt, strawberries, bananas and orange juice and let the mixture come up to a boil.

Step 4. Reduce heat & simmer. After the compote begins to boil, turn down the heat to a low temperature and let the fruit simmer. It will break down and start forming a syrup, about 15 minutes.

Step 5. Cool slightly & serve. Remove the pot from the heat and let it cool a bit before serving it as a topping. If you have any leftovers, store them refrigerated in an airtight container for later use.
