So, as soon as it starts to boil, turn off the heat and cover the pot with a lid.
Now let the kompot infuse for at least 5 hours. I usually prepare it in the evening and let sit overnight. Then, in the morning, I refrigerate the kompot for a few hours, for extra freshness. Children also like it hot, in which case I make it in the morning and in the afternoon the kompot can be savoured.
