A real fruit compote is that beautiful thing, seen in Grandmother houses.
It's a huge mason jar filled with fruit chunks in sugar syrup.
Where my Grandmother lived, there was a pear tree, and when they started to ripen, nobody could eat it all. To solve the problem, compote was made, since it's a preservation method.
Now, this recipe here won't serve to preserve anything, it doesn't last long.
But it looks and tastes a lot like compote, except it takes a lot less sugar.
