Our traditional and organic compotes are cooked in pots with 85% fruit plus cane sugar. They require slower cooking than jam. Compote is not as sweet as jam, meaning it has a higher fruit content. Les Comtes de Provence has a wide range of compotes. Those recipes are made with 85% organic fruit plus organic cane sugar to enhance the flavours.

Pure cane sugar
Cane sugar comes from sugar cane stalks and is a key ingredient in any kitchen. Reputed to be healthier than other sugars, cane sugar can be used in a variety of ways. Cane sugar is very complete and is rich in many nutrients that are essential to the functioning of the human body.

Boiling in pots
Les Comtes de Provence has opted to cook its fruit in pots. This is a traditional method, used by artisans and also our grandmothers. The width of the pot spreads the heat out to ensure the fruit cooks evenly and prevents overcooking. This enhances the concentration of taste and flavour. Cooking in pots also preserves the environment, because the temperature rises faster, leading to energy savings.
