Mixed Berry Compote

 Give us ALL of the berries!!
We cannot get enough!  The berries from our garden were extra special this year and we didn't let one go to waste.  We made this compote to pour over ice cream, cakes and waffles.  You really could drink it, it's that good!!
Frozen berries work great too. We froze and used so many of our own berries for the fantastic recipe!
