As I am not a huge fan of raw fruits but I am always motivated to buy them, it happens that the fruits don’t look good for eating them, so I make compote.
Last time, I tried via an online supermarket to buy a box full of fruits. It was like a gift for me as you don’t know what is inside the box before receiving it. When I got it, I discovered some kiwi and I don’t know why but I don’t like this fruit, so they stayed in the fridge… until I decided to add them in compote along with apple and pear.
The picture that I took, represents only half of the production. I only did a small batch because I wanted to try the taste before and be sure that I have the right balance.
- PREPARATION: 10 minutes
- COOK: 20 minutes
What do you need?
- 2 apples
- 2 kiwi
- 1 pear
- 50 ml of lemon juice
How to do a compote with apple, kiwi and pear?
- Peel the apples and pear and remove seeds and all the hard things
- Peel the kiwis
- Put all the fruits in small pieces
- In a pan, put together all the fruits pieces along with the lemon juice
- Let simmer it for 20 minutes at medium heat
I usually use the Companion from Moulinex for making the compote, if you have it, the setting is speed 3, 100°C for 20 minutes
You can check if the fruits are enough cooked with a knife: if the apple pieces s are soft, all the other fruits are cooked
- Put all the cooked fruits pieces in a mixer/blender and mix it until achieving a smooth texture
If you have a plastic mixer, let the fruits getting cold before mixing them, in order to not damage the blender.
If you use the Companion from Moulinex, mix the compote at speed 12 for 1 minute, then check that all the fruits pieces have been well mashed. If there are still some fruits pieces on the side, use a plastic spatula for putting them back in the bowl and mix again for a couple of seconds.
- Serve it warm or cold
More recipe to try and enjoy:
I love having oatmeal for breakfast topped with fruits, but now that most of my favorite toppings are no longer in season, I ve been experimenting with new recipes including pears and apples. The first time I made this compote I used it to top my warm bowl of oatmeal for breakfast (which I loved). The next time I made it, I baked it topped with bananas, oatmeal and pecans (which I loved even more).
