Sort through the berries, set them free from the peduncle. Throw away spoiled fruit, and the rest put in a colander and rinse thoroughly under running cold water. Put the colander on the pot to let the water drain out. You can also pour the berries on a clean towel, previously spread out on the table.
In a clean saucepan, pour water, put it on the fire and bring to a boil. As soon as the water boils, carefully put in a pot of berries. Add sugar to taste, mix gently. Try the compote. It needs to be a little sweeter than you like. The fact that the berries after some time give the liquid its acid, and taste the compoteand will be just as necessary.
Wait until compote comes to a boil, remove the pan from the heat, so the berries in the compotedidn't lose shape. The compote can be drunk immediately, spilling the glasses and pre-cool. And you can cover the pan with a lid and wait until the berries start to give him all their taste. When the pan feels warm, compote reveal the taste in its entirety.
The compote can also cook on the basis of sugar syrup. To do this in a saucepan with boiling water pour the sugar and wait until it is completely dissolved. Add the resulting syrup to the berries, again bring it to a boil and remove the pan from the heat.
To cook the compote from frozen berries, no need to defrost. Douse the berries with boiling water and immediately immerse in a pot of boiling water. Thawed at room temperature, the berries will lose most of their contained useful substances.
To stock up on stewed fruit for the winter, you need to roll it into sterile jars. To do this, take jars, sterilize them for a couple. Moved, washed and dried with clean towels berries pour about 1/3. Add the sugar and 05 a teaspoon of citric acid per liter water. Fill the jars with boiling water. Banks roll with metal lids with sealing machines. For the best sterilizing jars with compote in a day after rolling are best stored upside down tightly wrapped in warm blankets.
