Can I use honey to sweeten this or do I have to use maple syrup / white sugar?

Thank you!

I don’t care for the cinnamon. Next time I’ll leave it out. Easy to make and follow instructions

Hi there, I was reading the comments and one wrote “Can this compote recipe be processed in a water bath or frozen?”.

So my question is can this be canned (processed in a water bath with canning jars). I just started canning and this looks like a wonderful recipe and also something good for holiday gifts?

Another awesome Amy & Jacky recipe! I made this to complement ricotta pancakes on Christmas morning. You just cannnot go wrong with any of your recipes. I direct ever Instant Pot owner to your site. THANK YOU for the work you do and how thoroughly you explain everything!

This was the first recipe tried with my InstantPot! The second thing I make tomorrow will be the cheesecake #17. My only concern with this recipe was the “glossy” tip. It’s already shiny wet from the juice and the light in my kitchen, so I’m not sure how to tell whether it turned “glossy.” Pressure never naturally released on its own, either, even after the 7-8 minutes, so I just did a quick release at 10. (Should it have been kept in “Keep Warm” mode, or should I have hit Cancel for the natural release?)

I noticed with your fruit compotes. You don’t add water to the Instant Pot. Won’t they burn?

Can I make this with raspberries?

Would cooking times change if I used frozen blueberries?
Can this be made with a berry mix like Trader Joe’s medley of blueberries, raspberries, & blackberries?
