Stone Fruit Compote

  • 1 cup water 193
  • 1/3 cup honey (with additional honey, to taste) 194
  • 2 teaspoons pealed and chopped fresh ginger 195
  • 5 cups ripe, yet firm Chilean stone fruit wedges: peaches, nectarines, plums, and/or pluots (with skins intact) 196

Combine water, honey and ginger in a medium saucepan over medium high heat. Bring to a simmer. Add fruit wedges, toss to coat, cover pan. Allow stone fruit to gently simmer (stirring occasionally) for about 5 minutes, or until the fruit is tender but still retains its shape.

Taste for sweetness and stir in additional honey, if you desire.

Transfer compote to a lidded container, let it cool to room temperature, then refrigerate.

Serve compote with granola and yogurt for a delightful breakfast or over vanilla ice cream for a luscious dessert.
