Instant Pot Cherry Compote {Paleo & AIP Compliant} Recipe Type : Dessert Author: Bethany Wright Prep time: 5 mins Cook time: 4 mins Total time: 9 mins Serves: 6-8 servings



  • 4 cups cherries, frozen or fresh
  • 1 cup apples, shredded or finely diced
  • 2 Tbs. maple syrup
  • 1 Tbs. coconut oil (use the code STEWARDSHIP for 10% off at that site!) or butter
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 Tbs. arrowroot powder (preferred) or cornstarch


  1. Add cherries, apples, maple syrup, salt, coconut oil, and water to the Instant Pot bowl. Stir well to combine. DO NOT add the arrow root powder!
  2. Check the sealing ring, close the lid, and set the pressure valve to sealing.
  3. Select MANUAL for 4 minutes.
  4. Once the program has completed, quickly release pressure (do not quick release if you have doubled the recipe or you risk spewing fruit out of your pressure valve!).
  5. Stir the compote well — it will be very liquidy.
  6. Select SAUTE, and stir in arrow root powder. Stir well until arrow root powder is combined and compote begins to boil.
  7. Cancel SAUTE. Serve warm or chilled. Compote will continue to thicken as it cools.
  8. If you’re looking to increase nutrition, consider adding a tablespoon or two of collagen to your compote before cooking.
