AM Fruit Compote

Choose a tangy version of this compote with cranberries and grapefruit or a more mild one with peaches and blueberries.
  • 1 c. frozen cranberries (or peaches)
  • 1/2 c. fruit juice -- choose a 100% fruit blend that appeals to you
  • 1/3 c. sugar
  • 1 tsp. orange zest
  • 1 grapefruit (or 1 c. frozen blueberries)
  • 1 c. dried tart cherries (or 1 c. chopped dried apricots)

Combine the frozen cranberries (or peaches) with the fruit juice, sugar, and orange zest in a saucepan over medium heat. When the fruit has softened and the mixture is bubbly, remove from the heat. Remove the skin and pith from the grapefruit and cut the segments from their membranes. Add the grapefruit segments (or frozen blueberries) to the saucepan along with the dried cherries (or dried apricots). Return to the heat for 5 minutes or until the mixture is warmed through. Stir into yogurt, layer with yogurt and nuts or use to top yogurt, ice cream or waffles.
