Summer in a bowl (Warm Fruit Compote)

Who says you can't eat summer?
This heavenly fruit compote is the perfect breakfast for hot days. You can use almost any summer fruit for it (if you are lucky you pick them in your own yard), but absolutely best are peaches, nectarines, apricots, blueberries, black berries, mangoes, passion fruit...
For the oranges: a lot of people think they should eat oranges in the winter, as they contain a lot of Vitamin C (they do!), but oranges cool you from within, so they are perfect for hot days and that is why they are in this compote!
This dish can easily be turned into a dessert, in that case I would serve it with either whipped cream or good vanilla icecream (or both??)!

  • 3 oranges, 1 of them peeled and sliced
  • 3 ripe peaches, peeled and sliced
  • 8-12 ripe apricots, washed and halved
  • 1 cup of blueberries
  • 25g caster sugar
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • greek yoghurt to serve
Squeeze the juice from 2 of the oranges and pour into a saucepan. Add the remaining fruit, sugar and cinnamon and heat gently until the sugar dissolves. Cover and simmer gently for some minutes until the fruit softens. Only stir very gently.
Remove from the heat and serve warm with the yoghurt.
