Serves: 4 servings
  • 1 cup dried prunes
  • 1 cup dried apricots
  • ½ cup dried cherries
  • ½ cup dried blueberries
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 star anise
  • zest of one orange
  • juice of two oranges (about a cup of juice)
  • ⅓ cup of water, plus more as needed
  1. Put the dried fruit in a pan with all remaining ingredients, and stir a couple of times to distribute everything evenly. Cover the pan and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer about 10 minutes. If things seem to get dry, add a bit more water.
  2. Let cool in a bowl, and spoon over plain oatmeal, yogurt, or pancakes, as you prefer.
