about 2 1/2 cups apple compote


  • 1 cup apple juice or apple cider

  • ½ cup golden raisins

  • teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 2 tablespoon butter

  • 3 red cooking apples, such as Jonathan or Rome Beauty, cored and cut into wedges

  • 2 tablespoon packed brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoon honey

  • 1 3 ounce package cream cheese, softened

  • 4 bagels, split and toasted

  • Chopped walnuts, toasted (optional)


  1. In a medium saucepan combine apple juice, raisins, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, about 10 minutes or until raisins are plump and tender and apple juice is reduced by half. Set aside.

  2. For apple compote, in a large skillet melt butter over medium heat. Add apple wedges; cook and stir about 5 minutes or until tender but not mushy. Stir in raisin mixture, brown sugar, and honey. Cook and stir for 3 to 5 minutes more or until apples are glazed and syrup thickens slightly. Remove from heat; cool slightly.

  3. Spread cream cheese onto the cut sides of the toasted bagels. Spoon warm apple compote over bagel halves. If desired, sprinkle with walnuts.
