Berry Nice

I've found a fun & EASY way to make a juicy compote from the berries of your choice!

Take 2 cups berries (hull & halve strawberries, otherwise just clean/rinse raspberries, blueberries, etc.)
Add 2 tablespoons sugar
Add 2 tablespoons lemon juice*
Cover and let macerate (stand & soften) at room temperature for 1 hour
Compote can be frozen for up to 3 months in an airtight container.
* add more sugar according to taste for tartness

Serving Ideas:
Spoon over ice cream, sponge cake, cheese cake (or any kind of cake actually)
With cookies (Pepperidge Farm Milano anyone?!)
In Jello

From the July 04 Martha Stewart Living Magazine, pg. 33.

It is berry season in Oregon too! Yum!

Spoon over Yellowcake (uranium). Tasty. Also, if you macerate too long, you might go blind.
