This is a really yummy fruit compote that I make every passover – it gets a lot of compliments from all generations and my older son loves this for breakfast with some yoghurt and granola sprinkled on top or for desert… i sometimes top it with a crumble mix for a fancier dessert for the kids too.

You can play around with the fruits and spices – but this combo is my basic go to and works a treat 🙂


5 granny smith apples

5 king william pears

5 white peaches – firm

Cinnamon – a lot

A vanilla pod

4-5 cloves


Peel and chop apples and add to a large saucepan (with a wide base) with about 1/4 cup water and loads of cinnamon. Heat on medium heat and allow to cook while you prepare other fruits.

Peel and cut pears and peaches into segments and add to apple. Add vanilla and cloves and stir well. Cover and simmer for about 20 mins on low heat until the apples make a saucey texture and the other fruits are soft but retain their shape.

Enjoy warm or at room temp.


other fruits that go well – plums, apricots and nectarines and I have made another version with dried apricots added too.
