Fresh Fruit Compote 2

Makes 4 servings

This delicious mixture of stewed, fresh, and dried fruit makes any morning sweet and special. Top each serving with a little vanilla soy- or rice milk, soy yogurt, finely chopped raw nuts or seeds, or a pinch of dried, unsweetened coconut for a real treat.

  • 1 Granny Smith apple, peeled and chunked 
  • 1 pear, peeled and chunked 
  • 1 cup water 
  • 1/4 cup chopped dates, figs, or raisins 
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 

Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until fruit is tender but not mushy. Serve hot, warm, or chilled.

Tip:
• If the compote gets too sweet, add 2 to 3 teaspoons fresh lemon juice to balance the flavor.
