Compotes are so easy to make and are a wonderful alternative to sugary syrups for topping pancakes and waffles. I keep frozen berries in the freezer to add to fresh fruit for a beautiful compote. Serve over Buckwheat Pancakes.
2 ripe Bosc Pears, cut into small cubes (Apples may also be used)
1 package frozen raspberries or strawberries
1/4 cup water
In a saucepan, cook pears, berries and water over low heat, covered. Stir occasionally. Cook until the pears are soft and the raspberries break apart making a sauce. Remove from heat and serve over Buckwheat Pancakes.
