Fruit Compote

Fruit compote is another fridge essential. Its straightforward to make and has a long life. I use it all year round and eat it with morning oats, soaked oats or with yoghurt as a dessert.

Ingredients

1kg fruit e.g plums, pears, apricots or peaches
200ml apple juice
1 cinnamon stick
1 star anise

Method

Cut the fruit into quarters and remove the stone or the core. Put into a heavy bottom pan with the aromatics and cover with the apple juice.

Bring to the boil for 5 minutes then turn down low for a further 10 minutes with the lid on.

Let it cool down and keep it in a sealed container in the fridge.
