Units Scale
  • 2 apples (peeled, cored and sliced into 1/2-inch wedges)
  • 2 cup strawberries (hulled and sliced in half)
  • 6 cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup apple cider (alcohol-free)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  1. Put apples and strawberries in a bowl and add cloves, ground ginger, cinnamon, salt and sugar. Mix well with a spoon and set aside.
  2. In a deep skillet or saucepan over medium heat, add the butter, and once the butter has melted, add the fruit mixture. Stir and cook for 6-7 minutes, or until the fruit has caramelized.
  3. Add apple cider, stir and lower heat to a simmer. Cook for 15-20 minutes or until fruit is tender. You may need to add a little water if the mixture looks dry (start with 2 tablespoons and add more if needed).
  4. Turn the heat off, add lemon juice and stir. Let the compote cool until it’s still warm but cool enough to the touch.


Store this compote in a glass jar or an airtight storage container and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
