I used blackberries and raspberries. I had a little more than 6 cups of berries so had to adjust sugar but used 2 tbl of cornstarch. The consistency turned out perfect!!!

I did not see the cook notes that a variety of berries could be used so I stuck with what the recipe indicated which was raspberries. I'm giving it four stars because I do not believe the cornst...

I used blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries... Great flavor and very simple to make.

I LOVE this dish! It is so good on waffles or pancakes. I also put it on grits. SO GOOD! Although, I didn't use cornstarch and it turned out great.

Made this with all strawberries and fresh dried cinnamon basil to top waffles...yum

This was great and I used blackberries, this was an awesome compote! Thank You for sharing!
