Ingredients

  • 3 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 vanilla bean, seeds removed

Instructions

  • Add 2 1/2 cups of blueberries, sugar, and orange juice to a medium sauce pan.
  • Cut the vanilla bean down the middle and use a spoon to scrape out the seeds and add them to the saucepan. Throw the empty vanilla bean pod in for extra flavor.
  • Stir to combine and bring to a boil. Reduce to a low simmer and let cook for 15-20 minutes until thickened. Stir occasionally.
  • Using the back of your spoon, lightly mash some of the blueberries. It helps to release the juices. A few minutes before it's done, add the remaining 1/2 cup of blueberries for texture. 
  • Take the compote off the heat and remove the vanilla bean pod from the sauce.
