Why You Will Love This Recipe
Late in the summer, I spend a lot of time canning, preserving, and freezing our produce to have nutritious food from our backyard all year.
Aside from canning blackberry jam or making blackberry ice cream, one of my favorite way to preserve our homegrown berries is to make a simple berry chia compote.
Members of my Well With Cannabis Community wanted a recipe incorporating their cannabis and fruit harvest, so this recipe was born.
Here you will find the recipe, step-by-step instructions, and all of the different ways you can use your tasty compote.

Alternate Infusion Options
I am always trying to teach people that there is no one right way when it comes to making cannabis edibles and cannabis recipes.
There are many different ways to achieve the same result.
While there are some general guidelines to follow, you will usually decide how to make your edibles based on what cannabis product you have on hand.
Below we will discuss how to infuse your berry compote with cannabis oil or cannabutter, cannabis sugar, cannabis alcohol tincture, and cannabis concentrates.
Stir in Oil or Butter
One of the easiest ways to infuse this compote is to stir a spoonful of cannabis coconut oil or cannabutter into your final product.
This will not produce the strongest or highest dosage for the compote, but it is a great way to microdose and enjoy a sugar-free cannabis treat.
Sir in Cannabis Sugar
If you have homemade cannabis sugar, this is also an effortless way to infuse your compote while adding an element of sweetness.
Stir in your desired amount of cannabis sugar at the end of the cooking process.
While this treat will no longer be sugar-free with the addition of cannasugar, it will still be a sweet and delicious way to consume cannabis.
Stir in Cannabis Alcohol Tincture
If you have a homemade cannabis alcohol tincture, sometimes called the green dragon, prepared, this can also be an easy way to infuse.
You will want to use the cooking process to evaporate some alcohol left in your tincture.
Cooking off the alcohol will leave behind the important cannabinoid compounds while removing the strong alcohol taste.
Add in Cannabis Concentrates
Working with cannabis concentrates is the easiest and most discrete flavored option to infuse your compote.
First, check to ensure your concentrate is activated; if not, be sure to decarboxylate it first.
Then stir in the concentrate, either or FECO, at the end of the cooking process.
Inspired by My Clean Eating Cookbook
I am excited to share this recipe from my latest Clean Eating Meal Prep Cookbook, released in January 2021.
This is the fourth cookbook I’ve written, but the first one I feel is a true reflection of how I eat in real life.
This Clean Eating Meal Prep Cookbook details the exact way I’ve combined meal prepping and a clean eating lifestyle to get my munchies, my health, and my weight under control.
Treats Are Meant to Be Enjoyed
I love this recipe because it is simple to make and has very little added sugar, making it a more nutritious alternative to traditional jams, jellies, and syrups.
It's perfect to top or sweeten our favorite dishes, like homemade ice cream, and the perfect way to enjoy the health benefits of chia seeds.
While I am always encouraging the consumption of more fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds for better health, I encourage women to focus on mindful eating and moderation.
Ice cream toppings are great, but they're not always great for us.
Replacing traditional ice cream toppings with fruit compote is a simply delicious way to reduce the amount of sugar consumed while also providing additional dietary fiber, vitamin C, and omega-3 fatty acids.
It is unrealistic to assume anyone could live their whole life, or in my case, a week, without ice cream.
As I always say, when we think about food, it's more important to focus on quality, not quantity.
