Blueberry Cardamom Compote

Blueberry Cardamom Compote

A simple and delicious fruit compote made with frozen blueberries, ground cardamom and pure maple syrup.  The perfect way to perk up your breakfast, afternoon snack or late night bowl of ice cream!



4 cups frozen wild blueberries, no need to defrost (fresh blueberries will also work)

1 teaspoon freshly ground cardamom

¼ cup pure maple syrup (more to taste)

Pinch of fine sea salt

1 teaspoon of freshly-squeezed lemon juice


Combine all ingredients except lemon juice in a medium saucepan.  Heat over medium low stirring frequently until berries get syrupy and begin to break down, about 8-10 minutes.  Remove from the heat.  Stir in lemon juice.  Once berries have cooled, transfer them to a jar and store in the fridge until ready to use (berries will keep in the fridge for about a week or in the freezer for a couple of months).
