Blackberry Compote

A very simple dessert is poached berries.  It is simple but at the same time it can be very elegant.  You can flavor the fruit with a number of spices.  The blackberries looked wonderful and I decided to poach them with some star anise and some cinnamon.

I placed the berries with the spices in a small saucepan and added a splash of orange juice and a couple of tablespoons of honey. Simmer them over a low heat until the berries are soft but not mushy.

Serve warm with honey flavoured Greek Yogurt.  It’s a great last minute treat that everyone will enjoy.
