READY IN: 1hr 24mins

We enjoyed this over low-fat vanilla ice cream -- an interesting and different way to use the mint I have growing all over the place. Recipe source: local newspaper which states this was adapted from Bon Appetit (May, 2008)

Thank you ellie for a truly delightful and delicious way for me use two of my favorite fruits (well two of many) and indulge in my obsession with icecream. I did use FF FrozenYogurt to offset the use of sugar in this compote. Although there too I did sub a bit of Splenda in with the regular sugar. Also tossed in a sprinkling of allspice and cinnamon. Fabulous~! Thanks for sharing and posting. Made for NewestZaar Tag~
