    Aroostook's Note:

    This healthy (no salt, no sugar added)breakfast is "fast" food at it's best. Together golden raisins, apricots and cranberries make a colorful compote. For make ahead meals, place oatmeal/compote layers in individual covered containers and refrigerate (or pop a few in the freezer) until ready to reheat in the microwave. We serve this topped with warm milk or cream. What a great way to start the day!

      I use to make this for a client I had when I was personal cheffing and catering. She was trying to loose weight, but she refused to give up flavor. This recipe was great for that, and it was easy because all I had to do was make the whole 13 servings of the fruit compote, refrigerate it, make individual servings of the oatmeal, and only use what I needed of the compote. My client really seemed to enjoy it, and she ended up loosing the weight she wanted. :)

      This is a wonderful meal, filling and healthy. I used dried cranberries instead of cherries. The tart of the cranberries and the sweet of the apricots and raisins was perfect in the compote. A great comfort food on a cold and dreary day!
