    Hi Amy, I made a similar compote last Christmas also without any sugar or sweetener, but I used sweet wine for the syrup. I don’t know if that’s acceptable to you, check it out if you like: http://invitadoinviernoeng.blogspot.com/2009/12/sugar-free-christmas-compote-spanish.html
    Cheers!

    that sounds wonderful! I love anise — we only have used it in cookies so far, but I bet it adds a great flavor to this compote.

    thanks!

    LOve the idea of your reducing the sauce to get the syrupy flavor. This looks delicious. MANY congrats on this class! How awesome for you!

    What a gorgeous photo! I love it. You must have checked out those sites I recommended?! This would be great on a cold morning for breakfast. Congrats on your class filling up so quickly.

    @Chelsey, I didn’t get the sites…how did I miss that?? Can you send them to me again? I bought a book, though, and it’s helping. :)

    This looks so yummy with the cream on top, but with the vanilla ice cream it sounds like it would be a perfectly cooling treat as well :)

    Amy Reply:

    @Rochelle (Acquired Taste), Totally agree. Hands down, I prefer the ice cream but I’d take ice cream over whipped cream any day. It didn’t get photographed that way as I wanted to showcase the compote.

    This is a beautiful photo and wonderful recipe Amy. Many congratulations on the cooking class. I would LOVE to attend. I’m so close but so far away. I’m excited about the Progressive Dinner. It’s so much fun to check everyone’s recipes and I just can’t get enough soup and stew recipes.

    I love the syrupy softness of warm compote. Over yogurt in the morning. Or with a dash of rum or brandy for dessert. :)

    People who have not tried it don’t believe it, but prunes become luscious.

    @Linda- Kitchen Therapy, Prunes do become completely luscious. I am so glad you brought that up because there are many who are turned off by prunes.

    I just came across your blog and I’m so excited to find it. I read your story and I can completely relate. I constantly fight to lose weight and refined flour and sugar make me SO hungry.

    I also recently found out my daughter is allergic to wheat (amongst other things) and I have always tried to keep her away from sugar.

    I say I’m a terrible baker because I can’t get myself to use white flour or sugar so I’m always looking for sugar free desserts that are healthy and low in fat. This one fits the bill!

    Yes, I agree with Lauren–fabulous photo! I have a thing about fruity dishes, but maybe your compote can retrain my taste (and texture) buds. ;-)

    So much good news here today, Amy! Congrats on your cooking class. :-) Not a mistake, I’m sure. When the word gets out, you’ll have a waiting list!

    I’m so glad you are joining us for the progressive dinner party!

    Think I could substitute dates for figs?

    Amy Reply:

    @Rebecca, Yea, I think so. Dates will probably cook a little quicker – I could be wrong, though. I might throw them in a few minutes later.

    This looks lovely! You’ve been such an inspiration to me as I’ve been working to reduce the sugar and gluten in our diets . . . we’re still a work in progress, but we’re getting there!

    Hi… great sounding recipe. I’m wondering what the yield is. Thanks!

    Amy Reply:

    @teri, I can’t believe I left that off. Based on the ingredient list I’d say it makes roughly 1 1/2 cups.
