Recipe for Apple Plum Compote With Ginger


1/2 cup brown sugar; or less
3 tablespoon flour; [optional]
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves; [optional]
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg [optional]
1/2 cup apple juice
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 apples; tart, cooking like granny
4 large red plums; pitted and sliced
1/2 cup dried apricots
1/4 cup golden raisins
1 teaspoon vinegar; [opt'l, if served with me
2 tablespoon butter; or marg


A wonderful old fashioned wintery dish:

Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine all the ingredients and dot the top with butter. Bake about 30-45 min until apples are tender.

Feel free to substitute other fruits, adjust the spices or change the sweetness.

The same ingredients can be stewed in a saucepan on top of the stove without the flour for a delicious stewed fruit dish.

Make an oatmeal crumb crust and turn this into a cobbler or crisp style dessert.

Serve over ice cream, pound cake, pancakes or waffles or with buttered toast points.

Makes a good side dish for pork, ham, wild birds and tongue with perhaps a little chutney stirred in.
