Ingredients

  • 500g pack mixed dried fruit
  • 200ml fresh orange juice
  • half cinnamon stick
  • 6 cloves
  • 6 black peppercorns
  • 0% Greek yogurt or low-fat fromage frais, to serve

Tip

Giving it a twist
Replace the cinnamon stick with a whole star anise for liquorice flavour. Use grapefruit juice instead of orange. Throw in a handful of nuts or sesame and sunflower seeds just before serving.

Method

  1. Tip the dried fruit, orange juice and whole spices into a microwaveable bowl. Microwave on High for 4-5 mins, stirring halfway through until the juices become sticky and the fruits are plump.

  2. Leave the compote to stand for a minute and serve in bowls with spoonfuls of yogurt or fromage frais.
