Apple-Raisin Compote

  • 4 c. peeled and sliced apples (try Macintosh -- they're terrific)
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 c. toasted wheat germ
  • 1 c. raisins

Combine apples, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large saucepan. Heat slowly over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the apples are softened and bubbly -- about 20 minutes.

Stir in the wheat germ and raisins. Remove from heat and cover. Allow to stand for 10 minutes before serving. Store leftovers tightly sealed in the refrigerator.

  • Yields: about 6 cups
  • Preparation Time: 30 minutes
