AUTUMN FRUIT COMPOTE

Around autumn, make the most of the
ripe, soft fruits that abound
at this time of year by preserving
them as gorgeous compotes.



AUTUMN FRUIT COMPOTE
 1 cup apple cider
3 Bartlett Pears
3 apples (Fuji or Macintosh)
1 cinnamon stick
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup pure Maple Syrup
Peel and dice the fruit into 1-inch pieces. Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and then lower to a simmer. Cook covered for 30 minutes until slightly thickened.

~Add a dollop of natural yogurt and the
 compote to a bowl of oatmeal for a beautiful autumn breakfast.

~Serve the compote warm with crème fraîche or 
extra-thick cream as an instant pudding, 
or whisk cooled compote into whipped sweetened cream 
with crumbled biscuits for a delicious sweet treat.

~Serve warm compote with French toast and warm maple syrup,
 my grandson’s favorite.

~Serve over vanilla bean ice cream in a beautiful parfait glass.
