Reviews forGrandma's Breakfast Fruit
"What a fun recipe to make! This dish reminds me of the compote that my Polish grandmother makes; definitely a European dish. I substituted cranberries and a golden berry blend for the raisins, since that is what I had available. My mother did not like the dish quite so sweet, since her mother never adds sugar, but I though it was just fine, as did my siblings."
