Summer Fruit Compote

The Ingredients you will need are:

  • 3/4 of a cup of water
  • 1 ½ tablespoons of honey
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • A pinch of nutmeg
  • 2 medium pears, peeled and quartered
  • 2 medium peaches, peeled and quartered
  • 1 cup of dark cherries, pitted and halved

In a medium saucepan, bring the water to a boil with the honey, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Add fruit and simmer, covered, for 3 minutes.

Remove the fruit with a slotted spoon to a bowl, and chill in the refrigerator. Remove the cinnamon stick and reduce the sauce to about one third by boiling it down. Allow the liquid to cool, then pour it over the fruit and chill well.

To serve, divide the fruit among serving bowls. This recipe makes enough for four people.
