  • Cooking Time: 60 minutes
  • Servings: 8-10
  • Preparation Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 (8oz) package assorted dried fruit, cut up*
  • 1-1 1/2 cups white or zinfandel wine
  • 1 (20 oz) can chunk pineapple
  • 1 (20 oz) can cherry pie filling
  • *I like to add 5 or 6 additional prunes since there never enough in the bag.

Directions

  • Place cut up dried fruit in a 2 QT casserole dish.
  • Pour enough wine over the fruit to just cover it. Refrigerate the fruit for several hours or overnight.

  • Spread the cherry pie filling over the pineapple.
  • Cover and bake for 45-60 minutes.

Notes

Every holiday meal, as far back as I can remember, has included this hot fruit compote. It is as important to the meal as the jellied cranberry goo from a can. Any leftovers can be re-heated or served cold. I tried for a family picture to go with this recipe, but noone could stop chewing long enough for me to snap the picture....the actual fruit compote was much more cooperative!
