Milk Street Bowtie Blueberry-Lavender Compote

Blueberry-Lavender Compote

10 minutes, plus cooling

2 Cups

Frozen blueberries can be substituted for fresh, just be sure to thaw and drain them first. We particularly like this compote with our lemon-buttermilk pound cake and ricotta cheesecake—rice pudding, or Greek yogurt.

15 ounces blueberries (about 3 cups)
1/4 cup white sugar
2 2-inch strips lemon zest, plus ¼ teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon dried lavender
Pinch kosher salt
