This compote, a fresh alternative to maple syrup, is also delicious with pancakes or waffles.
In a medium saute pan over medium heat, melt butter. Add sugar and orange juice; cook until sugar begins to dissolve, about 2 minutes.
Add blueberries and cook until they begin to release juice, about 1 minute. Add raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries and cook until soft and ready to burst, about 2 minutes, depending on ripeness. Shake pan gently or use a rubber spatula to stir carefully (do not crush berries). Serve immediately.
