Mixed Berry Compote


  • 4 cups fresh berries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tsp orange juice concentrate
  • If you’re using strawberries, remove the stems and cut the berries in halves or quarters, depending on size. Wash all the berries.
  • Add the berries and sugar to the inner pot. Stir to start dissolving the sugar. Add the lemon juice and orange juice concentrate (if using)
  • Lock the lid in place. Select Pressure Cook or Manual, and adjust the pressure to High and the time to 2 minutes. After cooking, let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes, then quick release any remaining pressure.
  • Unlock the lid. Taste the berries (carefully—they’re hot) and adjust the sugar if necessary. The berries will be soupy, but will thicken up slightly as they cool. If you prefer a thicker compote, you can strain off some of the juice (it’s great mixed into sparkling water) or cook the fruit further to evaporate some of the liquid.
