Kitchen Hacks: 2-Minute Berry Compote

 

At the end of the week, I often have berries that are becoming a little too soft to eat unadorned. Rather than throwing them away, I clean them up, put them in a cereal bowl, cover it with a bread plate, and microwave everything on full power for 2 minutes.

The result? The berries quickly break down and may even come to a boil! When I take them out of the microwave, they've transformed into a delicious compote/sauce. When you make a compote this way, you don't even need any added sugar. Because the berries are just passing ripeness, they're at their sweetest and most flavorful.

Spoon your concoction over toast, yogurt, or even fresh berries for a multifaceted taste sensation. You can store the excess in the refrigerator for a week or freeze it if you want to save it for longer than that.

Enjoy!
