Dried Fruit Compote with Green Tea & Lemon

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.

Too Sweet

I agree with some of these other folks, eliminate the sugar. Mine turned out so sweet I couldn't finish it. It probably had a lot to do with the fruits I used, but either way, I probably won't make it again.

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 something that TASTES like you shouldn't have it can go a long way in helping to feel like you aren't being deprived. Thanks for the great recipe!

Why not just have a piece of fruit and a cup of tea; eliminate the sugar? Takes a lot less time and is healthier.

Why don't we just eat chicken breasts grilled on a foreman with no salt a side of steamed veggies, and saltless brown rice every day? Why are you even here?

It looks fantastic, but is there anything I can use if I don't have a slow cooker?
