By Brenda Storch, Messianic Rebbetzin of
The Tabernacle


FRUIT COMPOTE _________________

Fruit Compote


  • 1/2 Cup Raisins, regular or golden
  • 12 Dried Pitted Prunes
  • 20 Dried Apricots
  • 1 Lemon
  • 1 Orange
  • 6 Strips Lemon Zest
  • 6 Strips Orange Zest
  • 2 Tart Apples
  • 2 Bosc Pears
  • 1 Quart Sweet White Wine
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons Honey
  • 2 Whole Cloves
  • Pinch of Ginger
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick


Plump the raisins, prunes, and apricots by soaking in water for 2 hours. Drain. Cut the strips of orange and lemon zest, then peel the lemon and orange, removing as much white as possible, and slice thinly. Core the pears and apples and cut them into thick slices. Combine the wine, sugar, honey, zests, cloves, ginger, and cinnamon.

Bring the wine mixture to a simmer in a saucepan, then add the orange and lemon slices and the pears; poach for approximately 20 minutes, or until the

pears are tender. Remove the citrus slices and the pears and place in a large bowl, add the apple to the wine mixture and poach until tender, about 7 minutes. Remove and add to the pears and citrus. Add the raisins, prunes, and apricots to the simmering liquid and poach until tender, about 15 or 20 minutes. Remove and add to the bowl of fruit. Pour syrup over the fruit to your liking.


Substitute fresh peaches, plums, and cherries for the dried fruit. Poach until tender, about 10 minutes.
