Blackberry Compote

Blackberry Compote

This sauce is so easy to whip up and is absolutely plate lickin’, lip smacking good! I originally made it to top my Lemon Ricotta Belgian waffles, but this fruit topping could also be enjoyed on yogurt, ice cream, cheesecake, pancakes or french toast.

Also if Blackberries are not in season or not your jam, one could substitute with a different berry of preference like blueberries, raspberries or strawberries.
