peach compote

Summer is approaching and the warm months will bring delicious juicy fruit produce. There’s nothing quite like fruit grown under the Mediterranean sun! This dessert is relatively quick and seeing as peaches are already very sweet, you won’t be needing to add a lot more in terms of sweetness.

You will need:

  • peaches/nectarines (I used 7 small ones for 2 people) – washed and chopped
  • 1 cup cranberry juice
  • cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • juice from half a lemon
  • 1 teaspoon corn flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a medium saucepan place the peaches, lemon juice, cinnamon, sugar and 3/4 of the cranberry juice. Cook for about 5 minutes. In a glass mix the other 1/4 of the cranberry juice and corn flour. Increase the heat on your saucepan until the mixture is boiling, then add the corn flour mixture and stir constantly until the mixture thickens. Transfer to a serving bowl and add the vanilla extract. Sweet! 🙂
