Asian Apple Pear Compote

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Bergy

I had a surplus of apple pears so experimented! You could serve this for breakfast with cinnamon toast or put on ice cream with a chocolate sauce or anywhere that you would use stewed fruit. You may want to add some sugar when cooking it if you like things sweet.

I also had (have!) a surplus of Asian pears so decided to do something other than just eat them out of hand :) I used whole cardamom pods as I assumed that was what was meant rather than seeds. Very tasty and did not need any additional sweetener. Thanks for the recipe :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place all the ingredients in a saucepan and cook over low heat until the fruit is soft but not falling apart.
  2. Watch, you will probably have to add a little more water once or twice during the cooking so as not to scorch the fruit.
  3. Don't drown them, just a couple of tbsp at a time.
  4. Remove Cardamom seeds and serve.
