Have you ever wondered how compote differs from fruit drink? Are there any basic determinants: where is juice, and where is compote? Let's try to figure it out.
What is mors?
A cool drink, ideal in hot weather and made from berries, is called mors. The main condition: fresh berries should not undergo heat treatment, but the water, on the contrary, must be boiled, you can use pulp for a brighter taste. Juice is squeezed out of the berries, and the remaining cake (this is the pulp) is added to boiling water with sweeteners and immediately turned off. Then pour in the previously squeezed berry juice: juice is ready!
The best cranberry juice is sour inherent in this healing berry. It is also good for cranberries and raspberries, currants or blackberries, some make cherry juice.Nearby people consider jellyfish jam diluted in water. This is not so, because jam is fruit or berries, cooked for a long time with sugar, that is, the main rule for preparing fruit drink has been violated: berry juice must be raw.
What is compote?
Fruits boiled in sweetened water, sometimes with the addition of berries - this is compote. From fresh berries or frozen, from fruit or a mixture of the first and second. In the compote, a prerequisite is the presence of heat treatment to which the fruit is exposed. Sliced fruits are boiled to readiness in a large amount of water with sugar and are most often discarded - only liquid remains, which is called compote.
It is noteworthy that the word “compote” is French and means “fruit puree”. Over the centuries, the French version was diluted with water, and then the fruit stopped chafing at all - they just chopped. In this form, compote has reached our days.
What is uzvar and how is it different from compote?
Morse is raw natural juice with boiled water, compote is water with fruit boiled in it, and what is uzvar?

It is prepared in the same way as a regular compote, with the difference that uzvar is cooked a little longer, so that the dried fruits boil down and give their aroma and taste to boiling water.
What is more useful: juice or compote?
What contains more nutrients and vitamins: raw carrots or boiled? Of course, raw, everyone will answer. This is exactly the same with fruit juice and fruit juice: it is more beneficial that it contains a fresh component. Under the influence of temperatures in the compote, some vitamins are lost, and with them the benefits of the drink. This does not mean that it is useless - on the contrary, it is much better than juice from packages in a supermarket, but if you compare in percentage terms which is more useful, fruit juice or fruit juice, then, of course, fruit juice is in a better position due to its presence natural and freshly made berry juice.
