Parfait with Dried Fruit Compote

The South Arm Older Adults Cooking Club had a Christmas theme cooking session for the last meeting of 2013.


Michelle prepared some easy breakfast recipes and cookies recipes for the holiday season.


The first recipe is a Parfait with Dried Fruit Compote.


  • 1 pound mixed dried fruit
  • 1 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 6 cloves
  • yogurt
  • nuts or toasted oats or granola, optional


We used a mixture of dried apricot, prunes and cranberries. Chop larger pieces of dried fruit into smaller pieces.


  • Put all ingredients into a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 4 to 5 minutes, stirring halfway through. Alternatively, you can simmer the ingredients in a saucepan on the stove until most of the liquid is absorb.
  • Let cool, layered with yogurt and granola.


Tip: place cloves in a cheesecloth and tie it up for easy removal after simmering.
