      I prepared this compote recently and thought it was excellent. It is great with waffles or pancakes. as well as any chicken or turkey dish. I love using the pressure cooker for this.

      Delicious combination of flavors, and done fast! I left out the walnuts (just my preference) but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. It was a great accompaniment to our roast chicken breast. I had some left over, so I took the suggestion and served it over French Toast for breakfast, and it was a hit!
