Berry Compote

I found this recipe in Bon Appetit.  According to them, it should accompany Grand Marnier French toast.  However, since berries are full of antioxidants and deliciousness, I put the compote over everything from oatmeal to vanilla ice cream with white chocolate cookies.  I never use the cornstarch and usually omit the sugar (especially if the berries are frozen).  Measuring is really not necessary with this recipe.  You don't need more than a splash of rum, and you won't miss it if you take it out for the children (they might need the sugar, though).

1 cup orange juice
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup spiced rum
2 tbsps cornstarch
2 tbsps water
6 cups mixed fresh berries or thawed frozen mixed berries
