'tis the season for potlucks, entertaining, and eating. i love creating massive cheese plates with fruits, nuts, and compote. and leftover compote is always good to spread on toast or as a topping for pancakes.
i made this pear compote with some country pears from my parents pear tree but you can use any pear or apples too!
ingredients: 4-5 pears or apples a cup of water, only use what you need a pinch of sea salt a dollop of honey 1/2 tspn more of cinnamon directions: -peel and seed the fruit -dice them and put them in a small saucepan -add honey -add a swig of water to the pan -cook on medium heat -add more water when liquid evaporates -stir frequently -when the pears or apples are cooked down, add cinnamon and salt -let cool and serve along side your favorite nuts, cheeses, and delicious breads
