Compote is simply whole chopped fruit cooked with water and sugar to a desired consistency, so you can easily customize this recipe according to whatever fruit is in season. I make compotes year-round, since they are my go-to for when fruit is getting just past its prime. Serve for breakfast over pancakes, for an afternoon snack with chia seeds and yogurt, or for dessert on a little cake or ice cream.
