“I came up with this awesome fruit compote sugar-free to watch the waistline and for my hypoglycemia. This is great warmed up to put on toast, french toast, pancakes, oatmeal almost anything!!! I love it when I have time in the morning to make it when its the best but I usually have to make ahead and reserve it the next morning and nuking it. this is a great baseline and you can add anything you like!! These are guessestimates only due I just eyeball. I used different variations such as using Da'vinci surgar-free syrups, different fruits ie: bosc pears with raisins, cinnamon; coconut with bananas and macademia nuts.. use your imagination!! The baseline is like a caramel-like sauce that compliaments the fruit..yum!! Enjoy!! I do every morning-guilt-free!! If using pears, apples etc type of fruits, cooking time is longer-have to "boil" down to reduce the sauce to come to caramel-like taste (not consistency wise). .”
