1. Apple Compote

The queen of the list, this recipe is super easy to make and requires very little time or ingredients. It’s a great example of a compote that truly lets the apple express itself beautifully, and especially now, at the peak of its seasonal perfection.

2. Spiced Pear Compote

The combination of star anise, cinnamon and nutmeg with pear is a match made in heaven. This recipe also makes for a lovely gourmet gift that’s sure to please your loved ones every time they open the jar.

3. Ground Cherry and Vanilla Compote

Although not the most commonly used fruit, ground cherries are wonderful in compote form. For those who are not sure what to expect from these small, orange, grape-like spheres, reader Magalie P. left us this comment: “Ground cherries are a little taste of honey and sunshine.” So, what are you waiting for?

4. Baked Applesauce

Unlike the traditional method of using a pot to cook your apples, in this recipe we put them on a baking sheet in the oven—without any water. What you’ll get is a super creamy compote with a deliciously addictive texture.

5. Cranberry Compote

With the cranberry season in full swing from the end of September to the end of October, there’s no better time to add this compote to cakes and ice cream. It can also be a part of your Thanksgiving table, or used in a yule log for the holidays!
