Spiced Fruit Compote

My good friend Dee at Pedal’rs Inn in Wales WI shared this recipe with me and I have had several requests for it from guests so here it is.

4 Large oranges
2 half inch strips of lemon peel
3/4 C Orange Juice
4 cardamon pods
4 whole cloves
2 Tbls. honey
1/2 inch fresh ginger root

Cut ends off oranges and then cut away the peel and rind.  Slice oranges into 4 thick slices and place in a bowl.

Combine the rest of the ingredients in a small sauce pan and simmer for 4 minutes.  Strain the mixture and pour over the orange slices.

Chill for at least 2 hours, or over night.  Serve in a small bowl as a fruit course with some Greek yogurt or cream fraiche on top.

I like to add a little more color so I add some quartered strawberries and blueberries to the orange mix when I take it out of the refrig in the morning while it is sitting on the counter waiting to be plated.


Hope you all enjoy as much as my guests have.
