Apple Plum Compote with Ginger

1/2 c Brown sugar; or less
3 tb Flour; [optional]
1 ts Ground cinnamon
1/2 ts Ground ginger
1/4 ts Ground cloves; [optional]
1/8 ts Ground nutmeg [optional]
1/2 c Apple juice
1/4 c Lemon juice
1/2 ts Vanilla extract
4 Apples; tart, cooking like Granny Smith, peeled, cored and sliced
4 lg Red plums; pitted and sliced
1/2 c Dried apricots
1/4 c Golden raisins
1 ts Vinegar; [opt'l, if served with meat]
2 tb Butter; or marg

Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine all the ingredients and dot the top with butter. Bake about 30-45 min until apples are tender.

Feel free to substitute other fruits, adjust the spices or change the sweetness.

The same ingredients can be stewed in a saucepan on top of the stove without the flour for a delicious stewed fruit dish.

Make an oatmeal crumb crust and turn this into a cobbler or crisp style dessert.

Serve over ice cream, pound cake, pancakes or waffles or with buttered toast points.

Makes a good side dish for pork, ham, wild birds and tongue with perhaps a little chutney stirred in.
