The fruit kind, not the computer kind . . .

. . . of apple, that is. I have mentioned the apple compote we had in South Carolina over Christmas in several previous posts; here's the recipe:

Apple Cranberry Compote
5 large (or 6 medium) apples, chunked and peeled (Mom and I used Fuji)
3/4 cup apple juice, unsweetened
the juice of half a lemon
1 whole stick of cinnamon
1 cup craisins
1 teaspoon butter (not margarine), optional
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon nutmeg

Mix all but the last three ingredients in a large pot. Let simmer on low, covered, stirring occasionally, for approximately 30 minutes. When cooked down, add a little less than 1/2 a cup of brown sugar, the allspice, and the nutmeg. Remove the cinnamon stick. Simmer a few more minutes; serve warm.

I'm just about to go peel the apples and start putting it together for tomorrow night at Meg and Tim's.

Addendum: It's all made, and it smells wonderful. My sweetie beloved helped me peel the apples while I chopped them. I love, love, love it when we cook together. I enjoy the conversation and the company, and the productivity all rolled into one. I'm convinced that, as in the movie Like Water for Chocolate, stuff like that makes the food taste better. :) I'd love for us to take a cooking class together sometime.
