Word of the Day: Compote

A compote is made of fruit that has been cooked slowly in a sweet syrup consisting of water, sugar and spices. The fruit tends to maintain it’s shape because of the cooking process (medium heat while gently stirring so as to not break the fruit apart) and the result is a concoction of a sweet and saucy fruit compote. Sometimes it is eaten on it’s own, but it can also be used to pour on top of other desserts like ice cream, cheesecake or even funnel cake!
