For many years I have been closing dogwood compote with apples for the winter. I will share with you the recipe. Refreshing, with a slight sourness, dogwood notes are wonderfully combined with the sweetness of apples. As for me, a great drink for the winter for the whole family, and even very healthy.
Step by step cooking recipe
Sort the dogwood, remove twigs and tails, rinse under running water. Then discard in a colander.
Peel the apples from the core, cut into slices. Boil water.
Fill pre-sterilized heated jars with dogwood and apples by a third, pour boiling water, cover with lids and leave the compote to cool to about 40 ° C.
When the compote has cooled down enough, drain the liquid into a cooking pot, add sugar, bring to a boil over medium heat and boil for 5-7 minutes. Adjust the amount of sugar at your discretion, tasting the syrup for taste. I usually do not very sweet.
Pour fruit in jars with ready-made hot syrup, roll it up, wrap it in a blanket and leave the jars upside down until they cool completely. Transfer the cooled compote to storage in a cool dark place.
