Blueberry compote recipe

This morning after my blood test I decided to make pancakes for breakfast. I feel so proud, normally I probably could not be bothered doing something so erm, demanding (as opposed to popping bread into a toaster) but hey, it’s the long weekend!

I won’t post the pancake recipe up here since I think most people know how to make pancakes. Or at least they cheat using the ready-mix packets at the supermarket. I decided to use the remaining blueberries from Mother’s Day to make this blueberry compote. Gotta love leftovers!

Blueberry Compote Recipe (Serves 4ish)

Ingredients
* 300g blueberries (in my case I used 150g-200g blueberries)
* 50g castor sugar (you can use normal sugar for this but castor sugar is better. To make castor sugar from regular sugar, you need to grind it up until its fine which can be done with a processor)
* 50mL Cointreau (or similar)

If you don’t have a bain-marie, use an ordinary pot and get the water to simmer. Get a bowl which can fit on top of the pot (without touching the water in the pot). In this bowl, put all the ingredients in. Simmer for 20 minutes, tossing or stirring occasionally.

Serve immediately.
