Dried Fruit Compote with Green Tea & Lemon

January/February 2008

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (146 votes)

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.



READER'S COMMENT:
"As dried fruit is sweet enough on its own (even the unsweetened varieties), I would leave out the sugar. Sometimes it isn't about what is convenient (grabbing a piece of fruit and a cup of tea), it is also about satisfaction. Eating...

I wanted to try something new for breakfast that was healthy so I gave this a shot. I used apples, apricots, figs, assorted raisins. I forgot to put the cranberries into the cooker, so I used pistachios and dried cranberries on top. I thought it needed the extra sweetness, so I added the sugar. I think it really depends on what types of dried fruit you're using with whether or not you'll need the sugar. The only thing I didn't like about it was at the bottom of the bowl, the green tea was too watery and mixed into the yogurt to create a soupy, unappetizing mess.

Sweet/tart, okay once but I won't repeat

I disagree with other reviewers who said leave out the sugar. Are they using 3 tea bags to steep properly? Without the sugar I think this would be even more tart than it already was. Yes it had some natural sweetness from the fruit, but it definitely needed the sugar it has. I made recipe exactly as stated and it was pretty good. Good for breakfast this morning, but I'm not excited about having it again tomorrow. The pistachios were a nice crunchy surprise in an otherwise mushy dish. I used a bag of mixed dried fruit and I added raisins. The apples and raisins were my favorite pieces, and I didn't care for the apricot.

Great for so many different things!

It's so good on it's own! I put it in my oatmeal or cereal in the morning & on even tried it on ice cream, YUM. It's just different enough to be satisfying without the same boring fruit options.

This would be great if you

This would be great if you would allow for adjusting the recipe for a lesser amount. I am not into eating something like this for eight days straight.

Not my cup of tea

Rather too sweet for me; as well as some others have said. I would rather just have a cup of tea and some fresh fruit with that, than put this together.
