  • 1 pound Fresh Strawberries washed, trimmed and cut in half
  • 1 pound Fresh Blueberries washed
  • 1/4 cup White Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Orange juice ( or 2 teaspoons Lemon Juice)


  • Add fruit to Pressure Cooker cooking pot.  Sprinkle with sugar and let sit 20 minutes.  Add a little squeeze of orange juice.
  • Lock on lid and Close Pressure Valve.  Cook at High Pressure for 1 minute.
  • When Beep sounds, allow a 15 minutes Natural Pressure Release.
  • Compote will thicken as it cools.


Any kind of berries, fruit or cherries will work, so use whatever you love.
Frozen fruit will work too, but will produce additional liquid.  If first defrosted, pour out water and then add the sugar.
