Plum Compote

Written by Kajsa IngelssonAugust 26, 2021

I don’t think cooking can get any easier than this. Summery, tart-sweet and fast, what’s not to love? Pour into clean glass jars and freeze for a summer treat mid-winter, or keep it in the fridge stored the same way for up to two days. If you are freezing it, turn your jar upside down after closing the lid tight and let it sit for 30 min to create a vacuum.

If you don’t want to use any sugar, throw in some extra apples. Fun fact: there are pectins right under the skin of the apple, making the compote thicken on its own.

Plum Compote

15 minutes, around 2 servings depending on your use

  • 15 or so plums, pit removed
  • 1 apple, core removed
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon, or one cinnamon stick
  • 1,5 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest (optional)
  • The juice of 1/2 lemon
  • Sugar, to taste

Make it as easy as this:

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a pot and let it boil on medium heat for 10 min, stirring occasionally.
  2. Taste with a clean spoon and adjust the spices and sugar to your liking. ITS IMPORTANT TO USE A CLEAN SPOON EVERYTIME YOU TASTE, otherwise it will get moldy super fast.
  3. Enjoy with nice cream, coconut yogurt or do as I did and use it for your chia seed pudding 🙂
