When the selection of fruit in the winter is lacking, poaching shelf-stable dried fruit in lemon-infused green tea creates a luscious fruit compote. Serve topped with low-fat plain yogurt and chopped pistachios for breakfast or dessert. Source: EatingWell Magazine, January/February 2008

  • Steep tea bags in boiling water for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove tea bags. Stir sugar and lemon zest into the tea. Cut any large pieces of fruit into halves or quarters. Place the fruit and tea in a 4-quart or larger slow cooker. Cover and cook until the fruit is plump and tender and the liquid is syrupy, 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours on high or 3 1/2 to 4 hours on low. Transfer to a bowl and let cool slightly. Cover and refrigerate until chilled.



Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 4 days.

For easy cleanup, try a slow-cooker liner. These heat-resistant, disposable liners fit neatly inside the insert and help prevent food from sticking to the bottom and sides of your slow cooker.
