Elegant Brandied Fruit Compote Recipe


Winter fruit compotes are a must for holiday tables; they’re quite versatile, too, since they go well with ham or turkey as an accompaniment or are delicious as a dessert sauce over ice cream or pound cake. Elegant Brandied Fruit Compote is a cut above most fruit compotes; not only is it attractive, but it isn’t too sweet and has the subtle flavor of orange and brandy as well as the winter fruits.
””
Elegant Brandied Fruit Compote is made in the slow cooker, eliminating the need to spend time stirring a pot on the stove. If time is short, this fruit compote can be made ahead and reheated. It’s especially good served warm over a scoop of ice cream.
