Compote is a fancy word for stewed stone fruit. It’s my father’s favorite dessert and it brings back a lot of good memories from my childhood. It’s easy to prepare and you can use whatever stone fruit is in season or you can find in your market. It has a delicious sweet syrupy taste and texture from the lemon juice, maple syrup and cinnamon and can be eaten any time of day or night as a dessert or side dish with a tagine or chicken stew. INGREDIENTS 6-8 peaches, apricots, and/or plums 1⁄2 cup Raisins 1 cup Apple juice

1 tbsp Lemon juice 15-20 Coriander seeds

1 Cinnamon stick 4 tbsp Maple syrup

1) Remove the seeds from the fruit, and cut the fruit into bite size pieces.

2) Place the cut fruit in a cooking pot.

3) Cover the fruit with the apple and lemon juice.

4) Add the coriander seeds, cinnamon stick, raisins and pepper corns to the pot.

5) Add the maple syrup to the pot.

6) Let all the ingredients cook over a low flame until the stone fruit and raisins are soft for 20-30 minutes until the fruit is soft and coming o the pit.

7) Serve hot or cold

8) Enjoy!
