APPLE, PEAR COMPOTE
Compote Ingredients:
1 Honey Crisp Apple
1 Granny Smith
1 Bartlett Pear
2 T Butter
4 oz  (or just under ½ cup) of Finn River Solstice Saffron Hard Cider (the alcohol burns off during cooking)
1 t Honey
½ t Vanilla Paste
¼ t Cinnamon
1/8 t Nutmeg
1/8 t Ginger
½ t Lemon Juice
½ t Blood Orange Juice
Caramel sauce
           
·         Wash, peel, and dice the apples and Pear. Brown two tablespoons of butter in a medium sauce pan over medium heat. Add the cider, honey, vanilla paste, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, lemon juice, and blood orange juice to the sauce pan and bring to medium high heat. When the liquid reaches a boil add the diced fruit. Stir on medium high heat for two minutes, then reduce to low heat and let simmer until most of the liquid has evaporated.
·         Serve compote with your favorite topping. We love caramel sauce drizzled over the top. It would be great with ice cream, whipped cream, in a crepe or as pie filling.

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
