Fresh Summer Fruit Compote

The secret to this recipe is the infusion of the spices in the syrup... don't miss it!


1 package black berries
1 package raspberries
1 package blueberries (optional)
1 peach, peeled and sliced

1/2 cup water
6 tbs brown sugar
1 Hawaiian vanilla bean
1/2 star anise
1 clove
1/2 cinnamon stick

Combine all of the ingredients for the syrup to a boil and reduce heat to simmer. Reduce until desired thickness. (For this recipe, I let it simmer for about 10 minutes). Let it cool and drizzle over fruit.
