1 cup strawberries, halved
1 cup blueberries
1 cup blackberries
1/4 cup Light Syrup, recipe follows
1 tablespoon sweet butter, cut into cubes or softened
Salt
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

Prepare the Light Syrup. Combine water and sugar in a 2:1 ratio in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, until all the sugar is dissolved. Simmer 5 minutes, cool. Put the fruit in a frying pan and add the syrup. Cook over medium heat for 2 minutes, shaking the pan gently to coat the fruit with syrup. Add the butter, a pinch of salt, and the lemon juice, and continue to cook, swirling the fruit and butter around in the pan, another minute, or until the butter has melted. Spoon the fruit compote onto 4 plates and place scoops of vanilla ice cream in the center of each serving.

Light Syrup:
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup water

Put the sugar and water in a pan. Bring the water to a boil, stirring constantly, until all the sugar is dissolved. Simmer 5 minutes, then let the syrup cool. Use as needed.
