Personally, I prefer my compote to be a little more saucy. I guess that’s why French Women Don’t Get Fat. This recipe is from the cookbook, so it’s on the lighter side. It’s basically four Golden Delicious apples, 1TB lemon juice, 2TB butter, and 3TB sugar, with a cinnamon stick. Three tablespoons of sugar doesn’t go very far when it’s up against four apples, not that I’m complaining. Simmer for 20 minutes, add the pistachios, and simmer for another 10. Then get the oatmeal ready or the yogurt or the pancakes.
Eat Well and Savor.
