Oregon Fruit Products has announced two new varieties of Fruit In Hand Compotes for the foodservice market: Cherry Compote and Peach in Raspberry Sauce Compote. Oregon Fruit Compotes consist of large pieces of vibrant fruit in a thick sauce, creating the experience of fresh, house-made compotes while expediting valuable prep time in casual dining, quick-service and commissary kitchens.
Oregon Fruit Cherry Compote features diced Northwest cherries in juicy, thick cherry sauce. A deep scarlet color and rich cherry flavor add striking visual contrast and elevate any dessert or breakfast dish, from cheesecake to yogurt parfaits. Peach in Raspberry Sauce Compote features real diced peaches combined with seedless raspberry sauce, ideal for topping pancakes, yogurt, ice cream, waffles, crepes or French toast, as well as an ingredient in crumbles, crisps and cobblers.
“Our compotes taste as if the fruit was just picked and prepared moments ago, and yet they save the back of the house hours of time and expense in sourcing and preparation,” says Wendy Bramley, director of foodservice at Oregon Fruit Products. “Cherries, peaches and raspberries carry widespread appeal with consumers, and so we expect these compotes to generate a lot of excitement, especially in the summer and fall months. Even though they have a two-year shelf life while frozen, we certainly don’t expect them to last that long on any menu!”
