Ingredients

6 pears   900 g
6 plums, red or black   600 g
2 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed   3/4 lemon
1/2 cup honey   180 g
2 cardamom pods   0.4 g

Method

  1. Peel and core the pears, then cut each into quarters. Wash the plums, then cut them into quarters and remove the stone. Put the fruits in a saucepan, tossing them with the lemon juice, to avoid darkening. Stir in the honey and the cardamome pods.
  2. Cover and cook over medium-low heat about 15 min, with occasional stirring, until the fruits are soft but not falling to pieces.
  3. Let the compote cool down about 30 min, then remove the cardamome pods. Serve lukewarm or at room temperature into cups, spooning the syrup on top.
