Roasted Fruits in Cider

Pan-roasted winter fruits and glazed dried fruits give a new twist to the traditional 'Jewish' compote. Make at Chanukah when glazed dried fruits and nuts are easily available.


  • 2 tablespoons walnut oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 pears, cored and sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 2 apples, cored and sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 1/3 cup chopped glazed mixed dried fruits
  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • 2 tablespoons chopped glazed pecans
1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in maple syrup and balsamic vinegar.

2. Add pears and apples. Partially cover and cook over medium-high heat until barely tender, 8 to 10 minutes.

3. Remove from heat. Stir in dried fruits and apple cider.

4. Transfer to a serving bowl. Sprinkle pecans over top. Serve at room temperature.
