Here’s an easy, delicious and versatile crock pot dried fruit compote that I love.
It’s good warm or cold. For breakfast with hot cereal or yogurt. Or for dessert spooned over vanilla ice cream or pound cake.
This crock pot dried fruit compote would be a delicious accompaniment to roast pork or chicken or turkey too.
Or an easy appetizer topping Brie, goat cheese or light cream cheese with crackers.
The Skinny on Crock Pot Dried Fruit Compote
You can use whatever combination of dried fruits you have on hand or like best – figs, dried plums, dried apricots, dates, dried cherries, cranberries, blueberries, raisins – to make your crock pot dried fruit compote.
For this batch, I used a combination of dried plums, apricots, figs, cranberries and raisins. Next time I want to try adding a few dried cherries and dates to the mix.
And it keeps in the fridge for several weeks, making a jar or two of crock pot dried fruit compote a great asset to have around during the holidays.
According to my calculations, each 1/4-cup serving has 132 calories, *4 Weight Watchers PointsPlus, *6 WW Freestyle SmartPoints. Enjoy!
