In this video I will take you through my basic compote recipe which you can use for your Zohar cake and to get creative with the seasons. Compotes are a great way to use up leftover fruit and play around with aromatics.
I have a selection of fruits in front of me from pears to peaches but the compote I'll take you through is an apricot variation.
With this recipe I suggest tasting as you go and adding ingredients by taste and eye.
Base compote method
Prepare your fruit as needed - whether it's deseeding them or peeling.
Cut your fruit as you wish and add them to a pan.
Add sugar and spices of your choice along with a touch of water.
Add to the heat and cook your fruit down until they become soft but still hold some of their shape (5 - 10 minutes depending on the fruit).
