Strawberry Compote in a jarStrawberry season is here and these plump juicy strawberries hardly ever make it to the next day. However, I have been meaning to make a strawberry compote, so I made sure I bought extra berries for this specific task. Choose berries with deep red color, and strong aroma for the best flavor.

I added just two tablespoon of sugar to sweeten the compote, but you are welcome to add more sugar to taste while the mixture is cooking. 

Close up of Strawberry CompoteI stored my strawberry compote in old jam jars in the refrigerator up to two weeks. Of course, it tastes best the next day over some pancakes. But it will keep up to a couple weeks, and even longer if you sterilize your jars. However, I doubt you will need to store this for very long at all. And I have some complimentary recipes below that can help you with just that.
