The choice of fruit is yours for this fruit compote. Select the fruits that are best for the season.




  • In a large punch bowl or 2 extra large bowls combine cut-up apples and/or pears with the orange juice and lemon juice; toss gently to prevent fruit from discoloring. Add remaining fruit, the sugar, and shredded orange peel, if using; toss again. Cover and refrigerate fruit mixture for at least 1 hour or up to 2 hours.

  • Just before serving, stir in chilled champagne. If desired, sprinkle with almonds and garnish with geranium leaves and marigolds. Makes 24 servings.
