Apple Pear with Cinnamon Stick Kompot
1 Gallon water
1/2 – 3/4 cup sugar
2 cinnamon sticks
Bring water to a boil in a large pot. Quarter the apples and pears (do not peel). Add fruits and cinnamon sticks to the water and let simmer for 5 minutes. Add 1/2 cup sugar mix well and simmer for another 5 minutes. Taste and adjust the sweetness.
This kompot can be served either warm or cold, with fruits in it or without. To have kompot without fruits, just strain it through a fine mesh sieve.
I enjoy my cup of Kompot warm with additional cinnamon stick for stirring while I am sitting next to the fireplace.
