Italian Crack in a Jar….aka Compote!

Compote can be made with fresh or dried fruit (whole or cut into pieces) that’s slowly cooked in a sugar syrup (sometimes containing liquor and spices). Slow cooking is important for the fruit to maintain its shape.

The Culinary Institute of America considers compote to be one of two types of fruit sauce: there’s coulis, made with smooth, pureed fruit and then there’s compote, which is a chunky mixture.

Although all of our Jars are sterilized; our compotes have a shelf life of less then 14 days and must be refrigerated immediately upon arrival. We ship all of our compotes within 24 hours to maintain freshness and to ensure that they do not spoil.

My best friend who is a Cardiologist admitted that our compotes are so addictive, that a midnight run with a spoon in tow, out of the jar is the best way to enjoy.

Compote is fantastic on Waffles, Pancakes, Greek Yogurt or even ICE Cream!! Enjoy our “Crack in a Jar”, Italian style!!!
