I had a bag of dried fruit and couldn’t decide what to do with it. After searching cookbooks, I came up with a compote. It is more of a wintertime/holiday recipe. I guess it can be eaten anytime-on pancakes, waffles, as a side for meats, with cake…I am soaking the fruit in water and leaving it in the refrigerator for 24 hours. Tomorrow I will make the compote. The recipe calls for Marsala wine, but because of Brian, I will be using purple grape juice.
I also have some raspberries and blackberries in the freezer. I made an Italian orange custard. With the custard and the berries, I am going to make a Berry Tart tomorrow.
All of my Easter lily blooms have opened. I never really realized just how pretty the colors are until I shot this close up.
