Make the Compote
Place all ingredients into six- or eight-quart pot. Bring to a boil over a medium ﬂame.
Lower ﬂame and simmer for half an hour. Stir once or twice during cooking.
Cool and refrigerate. Serve cold.
Make sure to lower the ﬂame under the compote when it comes to a boil; otherwise, it will boil up and overﬂow. Keep this in mind any time that you are cooking fruit.
To add a bit of tart ﬂavor to this classic Swiss compote recipe, pour in 1/4 cup lemon juice before cooking. To add sweetness, mix in 1/4 cup or more (to taste) of sugar or Splenda any time during or after the cooking process.
