  • 1 large Granny Smith apple
  • 2 small ripe pears
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 dl raisins
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp sherry vinegar
  • 2 tbsp red currant jelly
  • pinch salt
  • freshly ground black pepper


  • Peal and core the apple and pears and coarsely cut up into 2.5 cm or 1 inch cubes.
  • Place in a hot sauce pan with the butter, raisins and thyme. Sprinkle in the sugar and saute for about 5 minutes.
  • Add the sherry vinegar and red currant jelly and saute for about 5 minutes more until all the liquid in the pan has evaporated and the fruits are barely cooked. You may need to add a drop or two of water if the compote is too stiff once it has cooled.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.


This is a nice quick accompaniment for roasted meats when you don't have what you need to make a sauce or gravy. It is also good with cold roast meats. It is best served just warm.
