Cinnamon Spiced Apple and Pear Fruit Compote Recipe
A Delightful Mixture of Sweetened Apples and Pears
Hi Sweet Friends,
When the Fall season arrives, I love making recipes that make use of the bountiful variety of apples and pears that grace the produce section of my local grocery store. This fruit compote combines these two fruits into a delightfully sweet mixture that is equally at home topped on breakfast oatmeal or pancakes, as it is spooned over a pound cake for dessert…or simply eaten all by itself with a dollop of whipped cream.
Watch this YouTube video as I walk you through the step-by-step process of making fruit compote.
