Spiced Prunes and Raisins in Red Wine

This compote is a very special dessert for your Passover Seder meal. I serve a small dish of these prunes with a selection of homemade macaroons.


Place all spices in a piece of cheesecloth, and tie well. Put the remaining ingredients along with the spice bag into a large stainless steel or other non-reactive pot. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 10 minutes. Allow the mixture to cool. Chill overnight in the refrigerator, and then discard the spice bag. This compote keeps well for about a week in the refrigerator.
