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
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)
