The Simplest Fruit Compote for Past-Peak Fruit


  • Summer fruit
  • A few tablespoons of sugar (we used 1/4 cup for the good parts of about 25 slightly angry peaches)


  • Pit and dice the good parts of the fruit (or leave whole if you're working with berries, halve if cherries, etc.) and gently stir together with the sugar in an appropriately sized saucepan. Heat the mixture over medium heat until the fruit has released some of its juices and the sugar has melted.
  • Serve by itself, or over yogurt, ice cream, pancakes, waffles, you name it (but for once, probably not a fried egg).
