Apple and Pear Compote
Peel the apples and pears, quarter, and remove the core. Dice into large cubes.
Bring the apples and pears with 300 ml (approximately 10 ounces) of water, lemon juice, half of the lemon zest, sugar (to taste), coarsely broken cinnamon sticks and raisins to boil in a saucepan. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for a few minutes until the fruit is soft but not falling apart. Remove from the heat and let cool. Serve in dessert glasses or cups.
