Making It Through the Week

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.

Passover Fruit Compote

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!
