Hedgerow compote

Course: Afternoon Tea, Breakfast, Pudding
Cuisine: English, French
Keyword: Cherry compote, Hedgerow, Sea buckthorn, Wild plums


  • Wild plums and sea buckthorn berries however many you forage!
  • caster sugar to cover the fruit


  • Cover the washed foraged fruit with sugar and leave overnight.
  • Put into a pan and simmer until the fruit has partially broken down. (I like to have some whole pieces in).
  • Prepare a clean jar and pour in the compote. It'll last a couple of weeks in the fridge.
