Apple Dessert Compote -- Compota de Manzanas -- Comfort Food Dessert


This recipe is simple and very refreshing, especially for summer time. 

My Mom used to make this apple compote often when I was little--particularly when I was feeling a bit sick after eating to much dulce de leche :) And I've always loved It! 

In Argentina we also called it comfort food dessert.   

Compota is also very good for digestion. And it's the perfect ''light dessert'' after a heavy meal and a refreshing light snack on a hot day.

Even now as an adult every time I eat compota ...and I taste the soft texture of soft apples full of juice in my mouth.... 

Mmmmm it immediately makes me feel like a little girl again.  

Apple compote is easy to make, inexpensive, healthy  and delicious!
