Health and fertility benefits of Apple and Peach Compote

Cinnamon is one of the best ingredients that someone with insulin sensitivity can eat. Half a teaspoon of cinnamon per day has been shown to be very effective at normalizing blood sugar levels. Cinnamon contains hydroxychalcone, which is thought to enhance the effects of insulin. It has also been suggested that Cinnamon prevents post-meal blood sugar spikes by slowing the gastric emptying rate - meaning that food digests slowly.

2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, each cut into 8 wedges
2 ripe peaches, each cut into 8 wedges
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup apple cider
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice


Toss apples, peaches, sugar, cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, and salt in a medium bowl. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium-high. Once butter is melted, add fruit mixture and cook, tossing occasionally, until fruit is golden brown and caramelized, 5 –7 minutes.
Add cider to skillet, reduce heat to low, and bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally and adding splashes of water if liquid reduces too quickly, until juices are syrupy and fruit is tender, 15 –20 minutes. Let cool slightly, then stir in lemon juice.
