This traditional non-alcoholic Polish drink is based on local fruits, collected in the summer and early autumn, dried, and stored with care until winter.
Generally, kompot is like a fruit soup with loads of different local fruits floating on the surface (plums, apples, pears, etc.). It is served in glasses as a dessert either warm or cold, but it tastes best chilled, as it is great for quenching thirst.
How to Make Kompot Z Suszu:
- Cover the dried fruits with cold water in a pot.
- Add a cinnamon stick and cloves to the pot.
- Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat and simmer for approximately half an hour..
- Next day, taste and dilute to desired sweetness. Strain the drink to remove the fruits and spices, discarding them.
- Transfer the kompot z suszu to a bottle or jug.
- Store it in the fridge and serve it cold.
