Fruit Compote

Kompot is a thick, sweet fruit drink that makes an excellent dessert or snack. Serve kompot in tall glasses with spoons for scooping up the fruit at the bottom.
Ingredients

– 1 lb. fruit*.
– 6 c. water.
– ½ c. to 2 c. sugar.
– 1 whole cinnamon stick.
– ⅛ tsp. nutmeg.

Instructions

Step 1:Wash fruit in cold water and cut into small pieces. Remove all pits and inedible seeds.
Step 2:Place fruit in a large kettle and add 6 c. water. Bring to a boil over high heat.
Step 3:Reduce heat to low, add ½ c. sugar, and stir. Cover and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes.
Step 4:Depending on the combination of fruits you have used, you may want to add more sugar.(Add sugar sparingly—if kompot tastes sweet when hot, it will taste even sweeter when cold.).
Step 5:Add cinnamon stick and nutmeg and stir well. Simmer for another 10 minutes.
Step 6:Remove cinnamon stick. Serve hot, or chill and serve cold.

Note : *You may use a single type of fruit or an assortment of fruit for kompot. Apples, pears, plums, and berries are all delicious choices
