Summer Fruit Compote
Although this compote is perfect during summer when peaches and strawberries are in season, it is actually delicious any time of year if frozen fruit is used.
2 cups sliced fresh peaches (peeled, if desired) or frozen sliced peaches
2 cups hulled fresh strawberries or frozen strawberries
1/2 cup white grape juice concentrate or apple juice concentrate
Combine all of the ingredients in a large saucepan. Bring to a simmer and cook for about 5 minutes, or until the fruit just becomes soft.
Serve warm or thoroughly chilled, by itself or over fruit sorbet or vanilla nondairy ice cream.
Stored in a covered container in the refrigerator, leftover Summer Fruit Compote will keep for up to 3 days.
