Apricot Compote

Dried apricots are a great way of satisfying your sweet tooth while receiving numerous nutritional benefits. This easy compote is quick, naturally sweet and very versatile. It can be served alone, topped with vanilla yogurt, or as a topping over fresh fruit such as pears or apples for a healthy dessert. It's well worth it to make extra and have around to enjoy these delicious fruits more often.

Prep and Cook Time: 15 minutes



  1. In a small saucepan, bring the lemon juice, orange juice and honey to a boil.
  2. Add apricots and raisins.
  3. Reduce heat to low and simmer just until they become tender and a little syrupy, about 10 minutes. Do not overcook, or they will dissolve. You want to still have definition in your fruit.
  4. Remove apricots and raisins with a slotted spoon and reduce sauce for about 2 minutes to thicken.
  5. Remove from heat and add apricots, raisins, and walnuts back to sauce. Serve warm or chilled.
Yields about 2 cups
