Recipe by rochsann
Wonderful on waffles, pancakes, and french toast, even ice cream. I serve it on Christmas morning; it can be made a day ahead. From the December 2001 issue of "Bon Appetit".

Hi Rochsan- I made your compote to go over some ice cream and it was so tangy and fresh tasting (I had the leftovers on healthy plain yogurt, too!). I cooked the mixture in my pressure cooker and it was done fast, too. Bon Appetit has the BEST holiday recipes. Thanks for posting.
