Dried Fruit Beverage (Kompot z Suszu)

Dried Fruit Beverage is one of 12 traditional dishes served at Christmas Eve Supper in Poland. This naturally sweet drink of distinctive flavour is made from dried apples, pears, apricot, prunes and fragrant spices: cinnamon, cloves and star anise. This amount of dried and fresh fruits gives the kompot enough natural sweetness; however, if you need it sweeter, add honey to the cool mixture. My Dried Fruit Beverage also contains thick slices of fresh orange, making this traditional drink even more Christmasy and citrusy. Serve cold with cooked fruits on the side. Find the recipe here...
