To make the compote, add the berries to a saucepan and turn the heat to medium low. Next, add the sugar and bring the berries to a gentle boil. Stir occasionally and let simmer for approximately 5 minutes.
In the meantime, add the water to the cornstarch and mix together to dissolve. Next, bring the compote to a gentle boil and slowly add the cornstarch until you reach the desired consistency. The compote does not need to be too thick as it will thicken even further as it cools. Let the compote cook for about 5 minutes on low heat to cook out the flavor of the cornstarch.
