Hot Apple-Raisin Compote Recipe

The hot apple raisin compote is a mixed fruit compote made with golden raisins and apples along with walnuts for garnish. Cooked along with cloves and bourbon, the hot apple raisin compote is flavored with lemon juice. This compote is so lovely and comforting. I love to prepare and serve it in winter. It just warms you up!
