Blueberry Compote with Honey and Orange Juice (4)

IMG_0194

Bought too many blueberries to nibble for breakfast and didn’t want them to go to waste. The only thing I could think of doing was to stew them but I wanted them to taste of something as blueberries can be quite bland and I didn’t want to add lots of sugar – I added a good teaspoon of honey and the juice of half an orange and the pulp too.

1 punnet of blueberries – about 8 oz

4 fl.oz boiling water

1 heaped tsp. honey

Juice of half an orange and its pulp

Place blueberries in a small pan and add the boiling water.

Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer and keep simmering until liquid reduces quite a bit.

Add the honey, orange juice and pulp and simmer for a while longer.

Can be served warm or cold – as is or over other fruits as dessert or breakfast (over banana slices hmm…)
