Compote with apples, pear and sultanas

Apple, pear compote with sultanas2

I would like to share with you another recipe of compote. As you might know, I am not a huge fan of eating fresh fruit even if I try as much as possible to eat one apple per day, apparently, that is an old recipe for avoiding being sick. But sometimes, I skipped some days and I finished the week with some apple leftover, so I like to do compote with them. This time, I decided to mix apple and pear and add at the end some sultanas on top. That was a great addition and this cooking recipe has now joined the “must have” booklet.

How to do a compote with apple, pear and sultanas?

  • Peel the apples and pear and remove seeds and all the hard things
  • 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 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.

  • let’s raise the sultanas in a bowl of hot water for a couple of minutes
  • Serve it warm or cold with soft sultanas on top of it
