Refreshing compote of apricots and orange for the winter

apricot and orange compote Each housewife, among the winter preparations, must have several cans of drinks. Thanks to their culinary imagination, today they are prepared not only from traditional fruits and berries. Recently, recipes with unusual ingredients are gaining more and more popularity, one of which is apricot and orange compote..

The appearance of the compote is quite deceiving: it would seem, what can you expect from a nondescript yellowish drink? However, the aroma coming from the can will immediately eliminate all doubts – everyone will like the sweet smell of apricot with orange notes. The taste of the compote is a bit like sweet carbonated water like “Fanta”, which will be especially appreciated by little family members. In addition, compote is a completely natural product (unlike soda), and there will definitely not be any harm from it..

The only drawback of this compote is that it can be cooked only during the apricot harvest season. If oranges are sold in shops and markets all year round, then fresh apricots cannot be found in winter. Of course, sometimes you can find imported apricots in the supermarket, but they are in many ways inferior to fruits grown in natural conditions by domestic producers. What can we say about their cost and naturalness …

Therefore, there is no need to waste time, but it is better to take advantage of the moment when apricots are available and stock up on apricot and orange compote for future use..

For a transparent compote, it is better to take ripe apricots with dense pulp. Overripe fruits may fall apart during preparation, which will ruin the appearance of the drink..
