BUILT WITH SUPPORT Fruit Steeped in Port
Makes 8 servings
So easy, you'll make it all the time (and you won't need any help).
1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbsp. lemon zest
1 cinnamon stick
2 lb. mixed dried fruit (figs, dates, apricots, cherries, peaches, pears and prunes)
Mix wine, water sugar and zest in medium sauce pot. Add cinnamon stick; bring to a boil.
Stir in fruit. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 30 minutes or until fruit is tender and poaching liquid is slightly thickened.
Serve warm or chilled with poaching liquid.
This is a great addition to a dessert buffet, sweet with a healthy halo. Served warm, it's also a great topping for vanilla ice cream.
