Apple Compote

My aunt Kraindy is a real balabusta. This dish is a constant in her home and is healthy, comforting and satisfying. I love the tart apple flavor combined with the sweetness of the prunes; this is a great dessert option to have in your fridge throughout Yom Tov. You can easily double or triple the recipe for larger quantities.
