Swedish fruit compote

Preparation time: 30 minutes

Swedish fruit compote

1 cup water
1/2 cup 100% apple juice frozen concentrate, thawed
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 cups blueberries, cleaned and drained
2 cups blackberries, cleaned and drained
2 cups strawberries, hulled, cleaned, and drained
1 cup raspberries, cleaned and drained
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Mint leaves

In a medium saucepan, combine water and apple juice concentrate, and heat slowly, but do not allow to boil. Remove a small portion of the hot liquid and mix it with the cornstarch in a separate bowl. When smooth, add cornstarch mixture to saucepan and bring mixture to a simmer, stirring constantly. When liquid becomes clear, gently stir in blueberries, blackberries, and strawberries. Remove at once from heat and transfer to a large bowl. Chill in refrigerator until cold. Carefully stir in raspberries, then spoon compote into sherbet glasses and garnish with mint leaves.
