Easter Dishes

Need some ideas for Easter??
Here are two dishes I will be serving that I served last year and are definitely worth repeating!!

1. Hot Fruit Compote- here is a great dish to serve with ham

2 cans comstock pie cherries
20 oz. can chunk pineapple
10-12 oz. pitted prunes
6-10 oz. dried apricots
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup cooking or regular sherry
dried cranberries

Set oven to 350. Drain pineapple into measuring cup, add brown sugar and sherry. Add enough water to make 1 1/2 cups. Put fruit into a large casserole dish. Pour liquid over the top. Bake, covered, for 1 hour. Serve hot.

2. Potato-Fennel Gratin- Barefoot Contessa recipe (let me know if you need the recipe)

  2. Liz - I made the fruit compote for brunch this morning and served it with an egg and cheese strata.... DELICIOUS!! My mother-in-law is a really good cook and recommended soaking just the dried fruit in the sherry overnight so that way you only have to cook it for 30 min in the morning.

    Thanks for a great recipe!! I love your blog!
