This delicious compote is so simple to make, super healthy, and totally packed with different berries. It can be used to top lots of different foods, from pancakes to cereals, ice cream, or yoghurt. We ate it at Christmas topping meringues and creme fraiche, and added a little marsala wine before simmering!
This was a classic dessert when I was a child. Rumtopf is a big earthenware pot that is filled with all kinds of fruits over the summer. To conserve the fruit they are mixed with sugar and covered with strong rum. Usually it starts with strawberries and ends with apples and pears somewhere late October, early November. Once all the fruit is added, it needs to mature another 4-8 weeks before it can be served. This made it the perfect Christmas dessert and gift.
This year I made one myself and am very curious how it will turn out.
My friend gave me a recipe for spicy berry chutney and told me it disappears in minutes after opening the jar. The recipe was in German (a language I only know a few words and how to construct sentences :))) so I tried to translate it and the minute I saw the word blackberries I remembered the marvelous forest path in the mountains that we often go to on the weekends. At this time of the year it is full of blackberries and they are very juicy and fragrant.
So we went berry picking and came back with the most substantial ingredient for that chutney.
I changed the recipe a bit and here it is! It is super easy and very delicious. Enjoy!
This Mixed Berries & Coconut Cream Pie is a delicious, super healthy summer treat and a Christmas special in New Zealand (when it's our summer holiday).
It's dairy-free, gluten-free and refined-sugar-free, so it must be totally guilt-free LOL!!
