    Fresh and Dried Fruit Compote

    Here is a compote recipe that contains candied ginger, coriander and black pepper. A judicious amount of your favourite chile would liven it up nicely as a side dish to roast meats especially pork.

  • 1 Bottle dry white wine
  • 2 tb Lemon juice
  • 1/2 c Sugar
  • 1 4" cinnamon stick
  • 1 Bay leaf
  • 1 1/2 ts Coriander seeds -lightly crushed
  • 1 ts Black peppercorns
  • 1/2 lb Mixed dried fruit
  • 2 tb Dry sherry
  • 2 ts Chopped candied ginger
  • 1 lb Firm ripe pears -or apples or combo -peeled, and cored -cut in thick wedges
  • 1 2" strip lemon zest
  • 3/4 c Blueberries, raspberries-cherries or combo
  • In a nonreactive pan, simmer the wine, lemon juice, sugar, cinnamon, bay leaf, coriander seeds, and black peppercorns for 15 minutes, covered. Strain, return to the pan, and add the dried fruit, sherry, and ginger. Simmer, covered, another 10 minutes. Add the pears or apples and lemon zest, simmer until just tender, 3-5 minutes, and then cool. Carefully stir in the berries. Store, refrigerated, for up to 10 days.
    Yield: 1 Quart
