2 pears, peeled, seeds discarded and seed bed removed, cut in bite size
1 handful seedless green grape, rinsed
1 handful seedless red grape, rinsed
2 dried Turkish figs, boiled for 7-8 minutes, the stems cut, cut in bite size
3 dried apricot, boiled for 2 minutes, cut in bite size
1/2 stick of cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup water
1 handful fresh walnuts, coarsely chopped
Place the apple, pear, grapes, cinnamon stick, sugar and water in a medium-size pot. Cook until the apples are fork tender. Turn the heat off. Add the fig, apricot and walnuts. Let it cool down, discard the cinnamon stick and store in the fridge. Serve with any meal with Pilaf or after meals as a light dessert.
*You can make compote by using the left over softened fruits such as apples and pears. In this way, they would not be wasted and they would cook faster.
