Banana-Coconut Compote

Tuesday, May 28, 2013

What is a compote? Compote is a dish made from stewed fresh fruits or dried fruits. I love to eat compote with toast or with crackers. It's quite simple to make, simple as 1-2-3. I made a combination of banana and coconut, with a couple simple ingredients from my pantry. It takes about 10 minutes to make. Easy, right? Take a look:

Recipe by Sweet Caroline

(it makes about 1 1/2 cups of compote)
4 ripe medium bananas, cut into chucks
1 1/4 cup sweetened coconut flakes
4 tablespoons sugar
1/2 tablespoon cloves

Put all the ingredients in a medium sauce pan over medium/high heat. Stirring constantly until the bananas are completely broken down, about 10-12 minutes. Let it cool, store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator (use within 4-5 days). Enjoy!
