    Caryn Gale's Note:

    Most people like to serve compote for dessert on Passover to help alleviate the effects of the matza and because there aren't too many easy or good Passover desserts. I got this recipe from a Passover cookbook called "Let My People Eat"

      This was really really good and a great change from the typical desserts I usually like [chocolate, chocolate, chocolate...]. I had intended to prepare this during the Passover holiday, but never got around to it. This was delicious served either warm or cold, a bit of whipped cream with a dairy meal added an extra special touch. Thanks Caryn for a great treat!!!
