I made this strawberry compote using frozen strawberries (get the organic one if you can find it) and sugar substitute, erythritol. I'm making several desserts (pavlova, ice cream and cake roll) using this strawberry preserve and I want to lessen the guilt somehow.

Instructions

  • Cut strawberries in half and put in a saucepan.
  • Add erythritol or sugar, toss to mix then cook over medium heat, the juices will start to ooze out of the strawberries, bring to a boil then lower the heat to let the mixture simmer.
  • About 15 minutes or so, when strawberries are soft, take them out of the saucepan.
  • Then turn the heat/ fire to medium high and let the liquid boil until it is greatly reduced and becomes thick like a syrup.
  • Put the cooked strawberries back in the saucepan, cook a couple minutes more then turn off heat.
  • Add lemon juice and picnh of salt. Stir and let cool before transfering to a container.
  • This should keep for more than a week in the fridge.
  • Use it as toppings or filling for cakes, ice cream or over your toast
