So I know it only happens one time each year, but my week without bread is always tough for me. I love me some carbs and definitely get a little cranky without them. Luckily, I made some fabulous foods for our sedar and like every holiday, there were plenty of leftovers. This recipe is suggested as dessert but we serve it as a side with our meal.
I bought a variety of dried fruits (figs, prunes, pineapple, cherries, cranberries, apricots, and apples) from Whole Foods. Just a heads up, you need to soak the fruit over night in cold water.
I am not a huge fan of macaroons, but I found these to be very fresh…they were perfect in the compote.
I made the compote at my place and then baked it when I got home to my parents. The only substitution I made was using Turbinado sugar instead of white sugar. This dish takes a little bit of time, but it is totally worth it! The cinnamon and clove flavors combined with the unique combination of dried fruit is perfect for a holiday filled with taste-less unleavened bread. The leftovers were just as good!
Enjoy this amazing recipe any time of year and feel free to use this delicious fruit in other recipes too!
