I actually made two batches of the compote. The first one in the microwave and this batch on the stove top. While i did find making this in the microwave quicker, i somehow am more fond of the stove top method only because my house is filled with that strawberry fragrance even before its done. I ll share the microwave method in another post but for now, i guess you all have to be content with the stove top method. How does it matter when you will have a jar of ruby red strawberry compote at the end of it all?

I LOVE IT! May I freeze this recipe? If so, for how long?
Hi Vivian, I have not tried freezing this recipe. I feel it may not work since it has only fruit and sugar. It may become like a smoothie cube and loose its texture once you thaw the frozen compote.
Can you use frozen strawberries? And if so, do any of the measurements need to be adjusted?
Hi olivia, i wont recommend using frozen strawberries as they may ooze out water
Do you use colouring? Cause I have tried making compote and it becomes a light pink and the strawberries become mushy.
No. I dont use any coloring. It can also be because of the strawberries you use
Am not a compote person n strawberries r not so into me. But I loved all d clicks !!
