Wild Gooseberry and Plum Compote (Raw)

"We got a bumper crop of gooseberries for the first time this year. Unfortunately the plum didn't produce much, but I got enough to make this recipe. The colour is really beautiful. I served this over my coconut mint chip ice cream!"

Ready In:
1 16 oz. jar




  • You will need a food mill to remove the skins and seeds/pits from the fruit.
  • I have two circular metal sieve like inserts for my food mill. I used the one with the small holes for the gooseberries and the one with the big holes for the plums.
  • Process the berries and plums into a dish or pot whatever you like, then add the Xylitol or sugar if you prefer. But taste it after adding 1 tablespoons It won't be super sweet or anything. If you don't like it tart add more sweetener to suit your tastes.
  • Put in a tight sealing jar and store in the fridge.
  • Bon Appetit!

I am of Irish /Spanish/French Canadian descent. In 2002, myself, my hubby Stu, and our dog Ginger moved to the high desert of New Mexico. I am a Domestic Engineer and a Professional Artist. I enjoy oldies, classical and jazz music. My hubby is a Professional Jazz and Classical Musician. He plays with the Albuquerque Philharmonic Orchestra which is wonderful because I get to see all his concerts and they are free! We are trying our best to live a Green and Sustainable lifestyle which is no easy feat in a desert. I love any cookbook that promotes good health and tasty meals. I enjoy pasta dishes and sweet vegan deserts. I have found that I am very successful in converting conventional recipes to vegan. This has allowed me to enjoy all types of foods that I other wise could not. Some day we would like to relocate to upstate New York and be closer to my family in Canada and my husbands in New York. My DH retires in 9 years, so nothing will stop us from heading home then :-)
