Strawberry Compote ( Coulis, Spread, Jam )

          Back from a small vacation, thought I should schedule some posts, but somehow didn't work out, in fact I had planned to do this post on last Friday, I had edited and uploaded the pictures too, but didn't find time to do the post. Strawberry Compote/Coulis/Spread or jam, I had made this when strawberries were still in season. I had wanted to do this after I saw it in Anusha's Tomato Blues, so when I got chocolate and strawberries as the two ingredients for the 'Shhhh Cooking Secretly' challenge, I decided to make this and use it as a filling for the cakes. This is a very easy recipe, needs just 3 ingredients and can be done in under 30 minutes, a delicious spread that can be used as a topping or filling for cakes, can be served with pancakes or toast or even to make milk shakes..

Need To Have

  • Sliced Strawberries - 2 cups
  • Powdered Sugar - 3 tablespoons
  • Vanilla Extract - 1 teaspoon


          Take the sliced strawberries, sugar and vanilla extract along with 2 tablespoons of water in a saucepan and cook it on medium heat. Keep stirring and also break down the fruits a little. Once it reaches a thick jam/jelly consistency, remove, cool and refrigerate.

Add more or less sugar depending on the sweetness of the strawberries.
