Hot Fruit Compote II

Recipe by Bobtail

This is another version of hot fruit compote! It is a little "richer" than my other fruit compote recipe posted here. My family thinks both are equally good. This one take a tiny tad more work, but still qualifies as easy and delicious!

This was a trail run for a dinner party dessert and I was very pleased with this recipe although I might reduce the sugar slightly next time I make it, thanks for sharing Bobtail!...Kitten:)
