I love standing over the stove, cooking fruits and vegetables over high heat, listening to the hiss as they hit the pan, and watching their edges color. This is a slower process than you might think, as the ingredients need to sear and caramelize at just the right pace. It requires patience and practice to get it right. When finished, this compote is sweet and tender, brightened with a splash of apple cider vinegar. It’s fantastic spooned over Quinoa Porridge.
