My eggwhites and oats are just not complete without toppings.
I love toppings.
Yes, it’s like a thing for me. Toppings. Maybe it’s growing up in the age of self-serve frozen yogurt shops, but it just makes eating egg whites and oatmeal something fun, like making an ice cream sundae.
So what happens when our fruit gets old? Well, a quick compote of course!
And I mean quick.
My cooking took a distinct turn when I became a mom. I use the microwave all the time.
Munchie never wanted me to put him down so cooking was a challenge to say the least. I tried nursing and stirring- not great results…
So I embraced that enemy of the slow cooking foodist and microwave almost everything. 🙂
Today I had pluots and apples that were a breath away from a sour moldy death. That’s too many pennies wasted for this stay at home mom, thank you.
So I chopped them fruits up, tossed them in a bowl, and ‘sweetened’ ’em up with some raisins and dried mango.
Microwaved that baby for like 6 minutes, stirring every couple.
And here I have a lovely compote, pie like topping for my oats. And no food waste.
I know ZERO about canning, so I can’t say how safely or longly or howeverly to preserve something like this. I know between my yogurt today and my oats tomorrow this stuff will be gone by the time you read this. 😉
