Fruit compote is a dish commonly prepared by simmering fruit, whole or in pieces, in sugar syrup. It’s delicious paired with ice cream, yogurt, pancakes, crepes, waffles, pound cake, granola, nuts, shortbread cookies, etc. It can also be used as the base for a cobbler, tart, or crisp. This recipe includes no added sugar, using only the sweetness of apple cider and fruit, though extra sweetener such as honey or maple syrup can be added if desired.
