Dried Fruit Compote For Two

READY IN: 44mins
Recipe by Lennie

You can serve this over ice cream or yogurt, or serve it on its own with a dollop of whipped cream. Freshly grated nutmeg is also a nice addition when serving. It also makes for a great breakfast. Prep time includes the sitting time.

Lennie, what a great dish. I made it for breakfast and we ate it all, so no ice cream topping for us later. :-( I loved using the micowave while making the rest of the breakfast. One thing, I could not find dried figs at my supermarket, so I substituted dried peaches. It was still swell!! I am still on the lookout for the figs so I can make it again for sure. Thanks for posting a great, easy recipe.
