  • 1.5-2 cups kiwi peeled, and small cube
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup water


  • Add 1 cup kiwi, sugar and water to small pan.
    Heat compote over medium heat. Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently. The kiwi will lose it vibrant green color and soften. The water should cook out also during this 10 minutes. If you need to add a touch more water, only add another tablespoon. This will depend on how hot your cook top runs and how thick your pan is. (Remember, there are plenty of variables in cooking and baking).
    I added in the last 1/2-1 cup kiwi, just to add a little green color back in.
    This is great served over any dessert, bread (like I am showing), or cookie.
    Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it!
