Recipe: Mixed Berry Compote

I love hot things on top of ice cream! My hot fudge/chocolate sauce recipe is coming later 🙂 This is dedicated to a healthier topping: Mixed berries!


  • 12 inch saute pan
  • 5 cups frozen mixed berries (I used the large bag of blackberries/blueberries/raspberries from Costco)
  • 2 T Vegan butter (I used Soy Garden)
  • 1/2 cup Organic brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup brandy


  • Heat saute pan on medium heat for a few minutes until it is warmed
  • Add all of the berries to the pan and cover until the berries have started to thaw (when you can no longer see they are frozen)
  • Begin stirring
  • when you have a some liquid starting to show, add in the sugar and continue to stir (Note: you may need a little water, depending on how frozen the berries were).
  • Add Brandy and turn up the heat
  • Heat at a medium high heat so the compote can “boil” and burn off some of the liquid, including the alcohol in the Brandy.
  • When the Compote begins to thicken, it is done. It should still have a bit of liquid to it, so don’t let it get to be “solid” in ANY way, otherwise, it doesn’t go that well with the ice cream 🙂
