Blueberry Compote

So what is a compote?  A fancy French word for fruits stewed in syrup!  It's a great way to use those Summer fruits when you've overbought   succumbed to the buy one get one free sales.  There's nothing worse than getting to the middle or bottom of a pint container of luscious blueberries and most of the remaining ones have fuzzy mold on them.  So, instead of waiting for this scenario, bring pints home and either freeze them for later use or make a compote to crown your pancakes, waffles or oatmeal!

Blueberry Compote

1 pint of washed blueberries

2 Truvia packets  (I gotta cut back somewhere)

1/4 cup water

2 Tbsp Cassis liqueur (continuing with the French theme, it's a berry liqueur)

1/4 tsp cinnamon

Add all ingredients to a small saucepan and bring to a boil.  Reduce to simmer and continue to cook stirring at times for about 15 minutes.  Cool and serve or refrigerate to use later.
