Cinnamon Pear and Apple Compote Recipe

Cinnamon Compote
Serves 4-6
2 ripe but firm pears, peeled, cored and chopped
1 apple peeled, cored and chopped
1/4 cup seedless golden raisins
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch of ground nutmeg
2 teaspoons butter
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons of sugar (to taste)
Salt and pepper (to taste)

1. Turn stove top to Medium heat. Add butter to small sauté or saucepan. Swirl the melted butter in the pan and coat evenly.
2. Add the chopped pears, apples and golden raisins to the pan.
3. Add the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg and continue to cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes.
4. Add the vinegar, salt and pepper and cook until the sauce has thickened and the fruit becomes soft and tender. This should take about 5 minutes.
5. Remove from heat and let your compote cool for 5 minutes.
6. Serve over ice cream, yogurt or spruce up your lunch the next day and add it to your salad or sandwich.
