I have done it without butter and its still great. I also use organic vanilla sugar and about 2 teaspoons, again it still tastes great. I love it with porridge or greek yoghurt too.

Can you do this without the butter to save calories? Not sure what the addition of butter does. Can anyone tell me? Thanks.

Hi, Yes you can use frozen fruit, however you may end up with lots more sauce as the fruit defrosts - which isn't necessarily a bad thing! Some frozen fruit isn't as sweet as fresh so taste the compote and add a little more sugar at the end if you need to.
