I always get loads of compliments on this sweet, colorful compote with its variety of fruits when I serve it for holiday brunch. It's a quick and easy recipe that only looks like it requires hours to prepare in the kitchen.


  • 2-1/2 cups water
  • 2 cups pitted dried plums (prunes)
  • 1-1/2 cups dried apricots
  • 1 can (21 ounces) cherry pie filling
  • 1 can (20 ounces) pineapple chunks, undrained
  • 1/4 cup white grape juice
  • Lemon slices


  1. In a large saucepan, bring the water, prunes and apricots to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand for 5 minutes; drain. Add pie filling, pineapple and grape juice; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until fruit is tender. Let stand for 5 minutes. Serve warm; garnish with lemon slices.
