Mom's Sugar Free Poached Dried Fruit Compote

Norma DeRemer


My Dad was a diebetic most of his life and loved his sweets. My Mom found this recipe years ago and made it for him and never told him that there was no sugar in it. Back then she got her dried fruits at the farmer's market. I found her recipe the other day in my recipe box and thought I'd make it. It turned out great.
