This is a recipe that is good all year round. We use it for everything! On top of porridge in the mornings, through natural yoghurt, on top of pancakes, with granola, as the base for my fruit mixed berry crumble, you name it is amaze balls! I even use this on toast instead of jam, It’s much healthier, has wayyyyyyy less sugar and tastes even better. Winning!!!
The great thing about this recipe is that it’s not loaded with sugar and uses the beast of whatever is in season. For example here I used fresh rhubarb but all seasonal fresh fruits work here no matter what time of the year it is. It’s also amazing with apples, peaches, plumbs or pears.
Makes approx. 1 litre
6 cups / 750g frozen berries (I buy a 750g bag of frozen mixed berries in lidl for €3.50 or something like that!)
2 cups / 250g Fresh seasonal fruit of your choice (I used rhubarb)
4 Tbsps. Maple syrup or sweetener of choice
2 tsp. Cinnamon
Super duper simples. Pop all of the ingredients into a pot and leave to bubble away for 15-20 minutes. You’ll know when its done when all of the berries have popped open and all fruits are soft and yielding.
Now taste to see if it requires more spice or sweetening. I find that when you use rhubarb you always need a little more sweeting to balance the tartness, but as always that’s totally up to you!This will last for 1 week in an airtight jar in the fridge or for three months in the freezer. I always put some into a jar in the fridge and freeze the rest so I have more ready when the jar is empty.
I hope you love it as much as I do. As you can see I couldn’t wait to get stuck in so made some pancakes while it was bubbling away so that I could have it straight away! Nom nom nom!!! Enjoy my lovelies I know I will! 😛 xxx
