FRESH MIXED BERRY KOMPOT ( RUSSIAN JUICE DRINK)
How to make Summer Berry Kompot – Homemade Fruit Drink at home. Kompot (or stewed fruit) is a traditional Russian dessert beverage that combines an assortment of fruits with rich, thick syrup. The base of kompot is, of course, the fruit.
Kompot is a wonderful soft drink all year round – refreshingly cool in summer or invitingly hot in mid-winter. Among the numerous recipes one may find some that use dried fruit, while others advise berries and still others call for preserved summer fruits. Kompot is extremely easy to make at home and home cooks can create unique versions with special fruits to taste. This recipe is super fresh and summery, I am using all the berries in this season.
1 cup of mixed frozen berries
1 cup of strawberries
1 cup of raspberries
2 – 3 lt of water
1 cup sugar or honey
Step 1 : Take a large pot, fill with water, make sure you can fit 2-3 lt of water in there.
Step 2 : Add your berries inside, you can use fresh or frozen, its totally up to you.
