Compote: The sweet antidote to too much matzah! Here’s a mix that makes a delicious liquid as well.
1/2 cup dried apricots (cut in half if they’re large)
1/4 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup dark raisins
1/2 cup dried prunes
1/2 cup dried figs (cut in half)
Wash all ingredients well to remove the sulfites, and place in a saucepan. Add water to cover the fruit, at least 2 cups (fruit will swell when rehydrated).
Bring to a boil uncovered, reduce heat and simmer just around 10 minutes. Do not overcook!
Remove from heat and allow to cool. Pour fruit and liquid into jars and refrigerate before serving. Delicious for breakfast or poured over sponge cake!
