Here is a festive recipe for the holidays that puts the dried fruit shriveling up in your pantry to good use.  Serve the compote on its own or as a topping for vanilla ice cream or coconut sorbet. 

Yum, and how easy can it get?

Place 4 cups water in cooker along with 12 dried figs (halved), 2 cups tightly packed mixed dried fruits (cranberries add nice color), and 2 tablespoons chopped crystallized ginger.  Cook under high pressure for 5 minutes.  Quick release the pressure.  When the compote has cooled slightly, stir in 1 cup toasted pecans or walnuts.  Serve warm or room temperature.



  1. I just like the valuable info you supply on your articles.
    I will bookmark your weblog and check once more right here regularly.
    I’m quite certain I will be told many new stuff proper here! Good luck for the next!
