1/4 c chopped dates, figs or raisins
1/2 t cinnamon
Directions:   Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until fruit is tender but not mushy. Serve hot, warm or chilled. If the compote gets too sweet, add 2 to 3 t fresh lemon juice to balance the flavor. Top each serving with a little vanilla soy or rice milk, soy yogurt, finely chopped raw nuts or seeds, or a pinch of dried, unsweetened coconut for a real treat.
