Dried Fruit Compote
My favourite way to get healthy servings of orchard fruit in winter is to start the day with fruit compote--alone or combined with yogurt and granola, or on top of steaming oatmeal. It's as easy as selecting a mix of dried fruit in the evening and pouring boiling water over it to just cover. The secret is to leave the fruit to rehydrate at room temperature for a few hours or overnight without putting a lid on the bowl. The compote will store in the fridge for up to a week, and the longer it sits the better the syrup becomes. TIP: Add a cinnamon stick and/or a slice of lemon during soaking to make the syrup even tastier.
