fruit compote with ginger syrup

This fruit compote with ginger syrup is a delicious dessert, especially in the summer months when you can easily find fresh fruit.

Kilimanjaro Foods’ ginger syrup recipe uses perfect blend of ginger root and sugar to produce a flavor that is neither overly sweet nor overly spicy. The result of adding the ginger syrup to the fruit is a delightfully spicy-sweet taste that kids especially love.


1 cup Strawberries stemmed and halved
1 cup peaches
1/2 cup Kilimanjaro Ginger Syrup
1/8 tsp Salt
2 tbs cold water
1 tbs corn starch

Cook the strawberries and peaches in Ginger Syrup over low heat for 3 minuets. Mix corn starch and water together to form a slurry then stir in the berries and simmer for 30 seconds. Chill and serve. Try serving this over shortcake, pound cake, or ice cream.
