    Elmotoo's Note:

    A lovely Cajun berry and wine compote, redolent with vanilla and the unexpected flavor of bay. The restaurant used mixed berries, but if you have an abundance of one kind, this would be a good way to show them off. This was once on the menu at Artesia Restaurant on the North Shore, New Orleans, although I'm not sure it is anymore. Simple and elegant.

      This was yummy. I like the wine flavor in it. The vanilla bean got a little lost, so I think I might use extract next time. I made this with blackberries, raspberries, blueberries and strawberries. The blueberries worked the least well because they are less permeable. I didn't have arrowroot in the house, so I subbed cornstarch and used maybe double, and it worked fine. This was even better the second day!

      OUTSTANDING! Was going to cut the recipe down, but am so glad I didn't, 'cause it's great with ice cream or pound cake (or even as is)! I always have frozen berries on hand for smoothies, but decided to go fresh this time, since I found fresh blueberries, raspberries & blackberries at Costco the other day! You've got AN ABSOLUTE KEEPER here! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged made & reviewed for one of my Vegan partners in the Vegetarian/Vegan Recipe Swap 4]

      FABULOUS!!! I cannot believe how EASY this was to make, but the WOW factor it gives! YIKES! This is such a favorite for me now -- so impressive...The only thing I had to do differently was use frozen mixed berries that I thawed first. I will make this every time I have company, and I will be using fresh berries to boot! (The frozen worked really well, but I want to taste this with the fresh fruit...) Served it over vanilla bean ice cream...YUM!
