Compote of Dried Fruits with Cashew Cream

September 20, 2011, 12:09 pm

From Farmhouse Cookbook
Serves 8

1 lb prunes, pitted
8 oz dried apricots
8 oz dried pears
3 cups water
1/2 cup natural cane sugar
1/2 vanilla bean
2 lemon zest strips, 2 inches each
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

Stir all ingredients together in a large heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce the heat to as low as possible and cook, covered, until the fruit is softened and tender, about 2 hours, stirring occasionally. Let cool. Serve warm or at room temperature topped with a dollop of cashew cream.
