Classic compote recipes include large amounts of white sugar, but this version relies on a more modest amount of real maple syrup for a bit of sweetness. Although this recipe uses fresh blueberries, lemon juice, and cinnamon, feel free to add any combination of fresh berries, citrus juice, and seasonings to create your own tasty flavour variations.
Instant Pot Blueberry Maple Compote
- 1 Instant Pot Pressure Cooker You can use an alternate brand of pressure cooker, just adjust the settings to suit
- 3 cup blueberries fresh or frozen
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon ground
- ¼ tsp salt
- Add all ingredients to your Instant Pot container and stir to combine. Add the lid and lock it into position.
- Set the pressure valve to the “Sealing” position and press the “Manual” button. Adjust the setting to high and select 3 minutes for the cook time. After a brief pause, the Instant Pot will automatically start building pressure at this point.
- When the cook time has finished, turn the Instant Pot off to prevent scorching. Allow the pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes, then manually release the remaining pressure by carefully moving the valve to the “Venting” position.
- Optional: To thicken the compote, select the “Sauté” function and cook over high heat, stirring constantly, until excess liquid is reduced. Turn the Instant Pot off and immediately remove container from the unit to cool.
- Serve immediately or transfer to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for 7 to 10 days. Serve over ice cream, yogurt, waffles, French toast, pancakes, oatmeal, pound cake, cheesecake, or rice pudding with a dollop of whipped cream, if desired. Enjoy!
