This quick and easy fruit compote is handy to have on hand for days when you're struggling to get all your servings of fruit.

Preparation

  1. Combine grape (or apple) juice, aniseed (or cinnamon stick), honey and lemon zest in a large saucepan. Bring to a simmer over low heat. Add fruit and simmer, uncovered, until softened, about 10 minutes.
