Vanilla and kiwi? A great combination! How to turn them into a delicious compote. Recipe by Sarah-Vanessa Schneider, Velvet & Vinegar

Ingredients for a 500 g jar:


  1. Peel the kiwis and cut into cubes.
  2. Cut open the vanilla pods lengthwise and scratch out the core.
  3. Add all ingredients into a pan (including the cored vanilla pods) and briefly bring to the boil.
  4. Leave to simmer on a medium heat until almost all the liquid has evaporated. This can take 40 to 60 minutes.
  5. In the meantime, sterilise the jar for 10 minutes in boiling water and leave to dry.
  6. Fill the kiwi and vanilla compote into the sterilised jar and seal straight away.

Note: You can also use other spices instead of vanilla. Bananas can also be added. If you prefer it less sour, you can use more sugar.

Serving ideas:

  • As a topping on muesli, porridge, overnight oats, semolina or rice pudding
  • With yoghurt or quark, or beautifully layered in a glass
  • Simply as a spread
  • As the top layer on a cheesecake – perhaps thickening a little with agar-agar
  • As a chilled dessert with fresh pieces of kiwi
  • Mixed in smoothies or smoothie bowls
  • For the more experimental among you, why not try a kiwi tiramisu with this compote?
