Spiced Fruit Compote


This is one of those times in which I wish the internet could convey a sense of smell. I made this compote this morning, and hope to serve it over oatmeal to a brunch guest. I also hope there will be leftovers!

For Chinese medicine buffs: people with "cold" constitutions, who would sometimes find it difficult to eat fruit in the morning, cooking the fruit really helps.

Spiced Fruit Compote

1 fuji apple
2 bosc pears
1 cup cherries
1/2 cup fresh cranberries
1/2 cup raisins
2 cups apple juice
1/3 cup port wine (optional)
zest from 1/2 lemon
2 cinnamon sticks
5 cloves

Core fruit and cut to large cubes. Place in large pot with apple juice, wine, and spices. Cook for about fifteen minutes. Eat over oatmeal or on its own.

HI Hadar,
My name is Rina and I am trying to help Mira Efraty to market her book Tasty Nature in English here in the US. She published it as a cookbook on CD and it's now available in the US. It would be great if you could review it (for Amazon and for web site www.mira-efraty.com ) and spread the word among US friends. You can search Tasty Nature on Amazon and place your review there. Also would be great it you could email your review to me. I'm located in Sunnyvale CA and would love to be in touch with you. My email is: rinab89@hotmail.com I really like your blog ;-)
Thanks in advance
Rina

Just wanted to know if you would be open to selling advertising on your blog to related gardening sites. If yes, please get in touch with me as I would be interested in buying an ad.
