Some recipes, especially where cakes and puddings are concerned, can take effort and time to put together. On a sunny summer day, you may not want to be working hard in the kitchen. You may want to enjoy the sunshine and put cooking to one side. This dish suits the need for very little effort and delivers a wonderfully fresh summer pudding in minutes. The great thing about this summer fruit compote is that you can use it in so many ways. You could have it cold, served with Greek yoghurt, either for breakfast or as a healthy dessert after lunch. You could serve it as a fruit sauce on vanilla ice cream. Or you could have it warm and spoon it over some pancakes, light sponge even some shop bought sweet waffles.

For this recipe I used a box of frozen summer berries that I had in the freezer. I usually keep some to hand as they also make a lovely crumble, just add topping! You could perhaps use a punnet of raspberries, blackberries and some strawberries. It is up to you; just choose your favourite combination, about 600g in total. The good thing about this compote is that it keeps very well in the fridge. You could leave it in a Tupperware and help yourself to it each day for up to a week. If you are using fresh berries, then you could freeze it and use it at a later date, either in a Tupperware or divide it up into small portions and store in small freezer bags. One final idea of what to do with this compote is to serve it with either shop bought, or home made meringues and freshly whipped cream. A perfect dessert with which to celebrate summer!
