Fruit Compote

This is a very fast, extremely easy, and in my opinion fabulously delicious recipe. It can go on or beside almost anything. I love the nutrition data on it, too.

A quarter of the recipe contains only 1g of fat with no trans or saturated fats, it has no cholesterol, no sodium, 3% of the day's protein, 17% of your fiber, 12% of Vitamin A and a good 4-5% of your Vitamins B6, E, and K, Niacin, Calcium, Magnesium, 7% of your Iron, 12% of your Potassium, and 18% of your Manganese. This stuff is great!


1 cup apple juice
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup dried apricot halves, quartered
1/2 cup dried whole figs, sliced
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


1. Simmer apple juice, brown sugar, water and lemon juice in a small pot, stirring occasionally until dissolved.
2. Add fruit and seasonings; simmer 5 more minutes or until fruits are plump and liquid is slightly thick. Serve hot or chilled.

What We Do:

Make double so there's enough for seconds!
