We love fruit compotes around here. It started with this tasty strawberry compote. Then we shared this delicious apple compote, which is perfect on peanut butter toast! We went on to share this fabulous mango compote, which is great on these mango pancakes. When a kind neighbor knocked on our door to offer a bag of fresh peaches straight from the orchard, I couldn't resist whipping up a batch of peach compote to add to the fruit compote lineup.
I am sure that we will be adding many more fruit compote recipes in the days to come. They are such a great option for breakfast - on toast, yogurt, or as a topping for pancakes, waffles, French toast or crepes.
