Apple and Walnut Compote

Chopped apples, walnuts, a little honey and a squeeze of lemon juice make this mixture a little slice of heaven. Have you ever had Aplets and Cotlets? They are a candy made in Cashmere, Washington and I absolutely love them. If you have never had them, go get a box! (or come visit Cashmere, which is right next to Leavenworth!)

Anyways, this compote tastes just like Aplets! I think it was the combination of the honeycrisp and Granny Smith apples. I had originally planned on serving this in Belgian endive leaves, but unfortunately my local store doesn't carry them, so I decided to make it anyways, and I'm sure glad I did!

Apple and Walnut Compote

3 apples, finely chopped (use any varieties, with 1 being Granny Smith)
1 c. walnuts, chopped
1/4 c. honey
1/2 lemon, zested and juiced

Combine all ingredients and let sit at room temperature for at least half an hour before serving.

Serving Suggestions: over yogurt, oatmeal, ice cream, pancakes, waffles...
