DIRECTIONS

  • Bring 10 cups of water to a boil.
  • Wash all the fresh fruit.
  • When the water starts to boil, carefully add all the fruit and bring water back to a boil.
  • Lower heat to medium low and let the mixture simmer for 35-45 minutes, uncovered.
  • Remove from heat and stir in 3/4-1 cup of sugar, to taste.
  • Let kompot cool completely, strain off the juice and refrigerate. Serve chilled with ice.
  • Make your kompot as light or strong as you want, by adding more water if you want it lighter. Just be sure to add a few pieces of fruit on the bottom.
  • Note:
  • You can eat the fruit after straining. It's good! Or puree, and maybe use in making a cake.
