Fig & apple compot

17 Oct


Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 12 minutes
Total time: 22 minutes

Serves: 8

Cost per large portion £0.40


  • 6-8 Figs
  • 6-8 dessert apples
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 50ml of water
  • sugar to taste
  • Directions:

    Compot to me is an essential and tasty way to eat and preserve fruit. I often have a spoon of compot on my porridge in the morning or as a tasty desert with plain low fat fromage frais.
    Compot is very easy to prepare and you are able to store it in a sterilised jar for weeks.
    All I do is peel and core my apples slice them and wash my figs.

    Place the fruit in a perpex bowl with a dash of lemon juice and water. You can add sugar but I do not believe it to be necessary unless you are using cooking apples. Cover the bowl with cling film and microwave on full power for 12 minutes. Spoon mixture into the sterilised jar and that’s it very easy.
