“Made with fresh seasonal fruit, this simple recipe can stretch from breakfast to dessert. It works with whatever fruit you have to hand, although it’s best not to use citrus. Try it dolloped over muesli, porridge or pancakes, or enjoy on its own with yoghurt or ice cream. ”

  • 800 g mixed fresh fruit, such as orchard fruit, stone fruit, berries, grapes , (not suitable for citrus)
  • 100 ml water
  • caster sugar, to taste , (optional)
Step By Step Method
  1. Recipe kindly shared by the Tesco Community Cookery School with Jamie Oliver. The recipe has been written to be flexible and scalable up to 50 portions. Note: the fruit weight is for trimmed, prepped fruit.
  2. Chop up all your fruit into similar-sized pieces (no smaller than a strawberry), peeling and coring as necessary, and removing any stones. Leave berries and grapes whole (if using).
  3. Place the fruit and water in a suitably sized pan on a medium heat.
  4. Bring to the boil, then cover and cook until the fruit is soft and the liquid has reduced, stirring occasionally – you want to end up with a fairly thick consistency.
  5. Have a taste and add a little sugar if needed.
  6. Remove from the heat and roughly mash with a potato masher.
  7. Cover and leave to cool a little. Enjoy warm, at room temperature or chilled.
