You probably wouldn’t serve this up at a dinner party, but when it’s past the best nectarine season, you have some nectarines that are about to go off, and you don’t want to make peach pasta, then I feel this was a very acceptable quick dessert.
for a jar of compote
5 peaches/nectarines, peeled (dip in a pot of boiling water for a few minutes then they’ll peel off very easily) and chopped
Handful brambles (aka blackberries)
2 tbsp brown sugar
- Simmer with the lid on for 5-10 minutes then mash well.
for the crumble
2 tbsp oats
1 tsp butter
2 tsp brown sugar
2 tbsp golden syrup
- Place in a bowl and microwave, or a pan and heat, then stir together.
- Place some of the compote in a bowl then put the crumble mix on top.
