1 Pound blackberries, fresh or frozen (thawed.)
3 Tablespoons dark brown sugar
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
Pinch sea salt
In a medium saucepan, add blackberries, sugar, lemon, and salt. Simmer over low heat until berries have broken down and the sauce has thickened. About 20-25 minutes transfer into a jar or container and allow to cool. The sauce will thicken more as it cools down.
Tip- If you’re not a fan of compotes, you can strain the berries and push out all of the liquid. Then you will have a blackberry syrup.
