       Yield: 6 servings
  
      12 oz Dried prunes
       6 oz Dried apricots
       1 c  Dried cranberries
     1/2    Orange; unpeeled
            -- halved and sliced thin
       6    Winter savory sprigs
       1 tb Balsamic vinegar (or more)
            -- (to taste)
  
   This is a sweet/tart accompaniment to mild main
   dishes, or a not-too-sweet dessert with slices of
   pound cake.
   
   Simmer dried fruit and orange slices in water to cover
   for 30 minutes or until soft.  Add savory sprigs and
   vinegar.  Remove from heat and let cool to room
   temperature.  Serve immediately or refrigerate; if the
   latter, let the compote come to room temperature
   before serving.
