  • 2 x Large Saucepans
  • Wooden Spoon
  • Hand Blender
  • Empty Clean Jars

Method
  1. Firstly, chop apples and pears and place in water, in a large saucepan on medium heat and cook for 5 minutes until it starts to bubble. Add blackberries, continue to boil.
  2. Next, add the lucuma and dried inca berries to the mixture and stir with a wooden spoon to dissolve the powder well. 
  3. Keep it on the heat for 35 - 40 minutes, stirring regularing so the chunks start to break down. 
  4. Use an hand blender to semi blend so that it fits into jars easier. 
  5. Then, in another large saucepan submerge the empty clean jars and boil for 5 minutes to sterilize. 
  6. When your compote is at a desired consistency, spoon straight into the jars and seal the lids. As it cool it will create a vaccum and then it can be stored for up to 3 months.
