Apple Raisin Compote

Apple Raisin Compote

A delicious compote that is heavenly in the caramel apple cupcakes I make, as well as a topping for ice cream, in place of jam, or perhaps paired with a pork roast? Any way you use it, it's sure to please!

  1. Step 1

    Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add chopped apples and turn to coat. Cook apples, stirring frequently, until golden in color, 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. Step 2

    Slowly stir maple syrup, water, brown sugar, raisins, and cinnamon into the apples. Reduce heat and simmer until a thick syrup forms, about 15 minutes.
  3. Step 3

    Remove from heat and let stand for several minutes to thicken. Serve hot, or refrigerate and serve cold.
