750g gooseberries or plums
1/2 orange (rind shaved in strips)
10g fresh root ginger, peeled and cut into thin matchsticks
1 cinnamon stick
Place the gooseberries, the sugar, the orange rind, ginger and cinnamon in a sauce pan and cook on medium-low heat for roughly 30 minutes, until a semi thick compote consistency has formed. Set aside to cool.
Enjoy with pancakes or waffles and whipped cream!
