Apple Compote




This quick and easy compote is full of flavor and perfect for a topping for your granola, ice cream, over pancakes, waffles, oatmeal or French Toast....a little something special for your breakfast!

Apple Compote

3 T unsalted butter

2 lbs. apples I use a mix of granny smith and honey crisp

1/3 c. light brown sugar packed

1/4 tap salt

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1/4 cup water

1 tsp cornstarch and 1 T water mixed

Squeeze of half a lemon

1/2 c. toasted pecans

Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Ad the brown sugar, salt and cinnamon. Cook until bubbly about a minute.

 Add the apples, vanilla and saute, stirring until the apples are tender and caramelized, about 10-15 minutes. 

Add water and toasted pecans, reduce heat to low and cook for about a minute. Add the cornstarch and water and stir until thickened slightly. 

Remove from heat and squeeze in the lemon. 

 Serve warm or allow to cool completely before transferring to a glass container to refrigerate. The compote will be safe in refrigerator for about 1 week. Mine doesn't last that long!!
