Fruit Compote

Fruit Compote

This is an old recipe that I've changed and adapted over the years to accommodate what was available in Bangkok. The original recipe called for dates rather than figs, but lately the dates you can get here, in addition to being very expensive, aren't really the kind suited to this dish. Fruit Compote The original recipe also called for chopped or sliced nuts, but after trying out the ground almonds, I found I liked the cake-like texture they gave the dish.
