It’s been a while since I’ve participated in a French Friday with Dorie recipe. I could list excuses but I’m not going to. I’ll just get back in it! I love reading the posts the others in the group share and the camaraderie this group has created and I’ve missed contributing to it. This past Friday’s FFwD recipe is Compote de Pommes two ways. That is applesauce for you who don’t know the lingo. There is a straight forward recipe and the second one is a thicker, gussied up version with butter. I opted for the first go at it and will make the turnovers tomorrow for a fancy breakfast.
I took a taste. Delish. I didn’t add the butter or vanilla, which were optional. I thought this was good as is. The compote is now chilling in the fridge waiting to be tucked in some puff pastry and enjoyed as a hand pie. But Dorie also suggests adding some creme fraîche and enjoying it as a delicious dessert. Perhaps I’ll do both. Perhaps I’ll try to nestle this in to something for thanksgiving … Hmm… Posts to come!
