Recipe For Dried Fruit Compôte

Dried fruit compôte was traditionally a breakfast dish and to this day, many friends add this to their morning meal. It can also be used as an accompaniment to meat or served as a dessert with custard.

So, let’s carry on with my gremlin. For some reason if I try to edit a post using my WordPress App on my iPad the recipe plugin fails. This irritates me no end as I loathe the unprofessional look when this happens. I pay for this plugin and the thought of changing over to another one irks me. So, I find myself stuck using a plugin that breaks my blog. The other issue I had most recently was that Jetpack stopped supporting the mobile theme of the blog theme I was using. This happened shortly before we left for overseas and I did not have time to resolve the issue. I merely disabled the mobile theme function and pushed the problem out of my mind. As the saying goes, out of sight, out of mind and that is what happened. I completely forgot that I had to fix the issue.

It was only when I went onto my iPhone to look on my blog for something that I realized there was a problem. I did not like how my blog looked on my mobile phone and so I set about updating my theme. This took a lot of hard work and effort on my behalf. The theme I now have did not have the exact look I wanted. This meant writing CSS code which I know nothing about. I am still working on tweaking a few things, but I am happy now with what I have. While concentrating my efforts on the appearance issues I did not want to make complicated recipes. This one for dried fruit compôte was super simple to make. I have used the fruit to top pancakes and I will be topping some whisky oats with them as well.

  5. This compote looks wonderful Tandy! I think I’ll add the custard =) Also, ugh, technical blog issues are the worst. I’m always thankful when you or one of my email subscribers alerts me to an issue. Many times as a blogger, I’m not even aware. I like you’re attitude though….out of sight…out of mind!
