Looking for a delicious dessert? Then check out this apricot-cherry compote made in slow cooker.
packages (6 ounces each) dried apricots
cans (5 1/2 ounces each) apricot nectar
cup sweetened dried cherries
teaspoons grated orange peel
Mix all ingredients in 2- to 3 1/2-quart slow cooker.
Cover and cook on low heat setting 8 to 10 hours.
Serve warm or chilled. To chill, cool about 2 hours, then spoon compote into container; cover and refrigerate until chilled.
For a "golden" compote, use golden raisins instead of the dried cherries.
This compote stands on its own for dessert, but it also makes a delicious topping for orange sherbet or vanilla or chocolate ice cream.
For an added hint of orange, stir a couple of tablespoons of orange-flavored liqueur into the compote before serving.
