Apple Compote Recipe

Posted on July 10, 2013

What’s more American than apple pie? How about apple compote? Okay, maybe it’s not more American, but it’s at least as American. There are few things better than enjoying some ice cream on a hot day. One of the few things that might be better is enjoying that ice cream with this simple but delicious apple compote. All you will need are some apples and other ingredients you probably already have in your pantry.

For my apple compote, I used a mix of Braeburn and Gala apples because I like their sweetness. Use whatever apples are your favorites.

Mix the water, sugars and spices and bring to a boil.
Next add those crisp apples and cook.

Let the compote cool before serving. You may have a hard time not just eating the compote as is. I had a few yummy spoonfuls. If you can restrain yourself, it makes the perfect topping for pancakes, oatmeal, or ice cream.

You can refrigerate any extra apple compote, though your probably won’t have any.

Scoop up some vanilla ice cream, add a drizzle of caramel sauce if you have it and top with apple compote.
