Directions

Notes:
For this recipe, you will want to use firm ripe fruit like apples, apricots, peaches, grapes, cherries, plums or pears. Serve warm plain to drink or sprinkled with a little powdered sugar and a side of cream. You can serve over oatmeal, grits, pancakes, or waffles. To make syrup from the juice, remove the fruit while the liquid is simmering. Slowly add 1-2 tablespoons of flour, stirring constantly. When the liquid has thickened some, syrup is ready to serve. To store: Place the hot Compote in sterilized jars and cover. Store in a cool dry place.
