Christmas fruit compote
Give the new year a healthy start with this lovely tangy and light fruit compote with just a hint of Christmas to carry over that feel good factor a bit longer into the new year. Easy to make, great on porridge or to liven up a natural yogurt, it also makes a lovely gift when presented in a glass jar.
You will need: 200g of fresh cranberries, handful of kumquats (peeled), 2 clementines (peeled and segmented - making sure to remove as much pith as possible), 1 apple -peeled, cored and chopped, 2 tablespoons of water, 1 tablespoon of caster sugar, 1 teaspoon of all spice and 2 star aniseed.
To make: put all ingredients except for the caster sugar, in a saucepan, bring to the boil and simmer for 15 minutes then add sugar. Good hot/cold on porridge or cold on yogurt.
