Gluten-free Fruit Compote

Thanksgiving is just around the corner! In my house, my mom prepares the side dishes, my dad prepares the turkey, and I prepare the dessert :)! Here is a prospective dessert for this Thanksgiving! It originates from 17th century France and is made of whole/pieces of fruits/berries in a sugar syrup and spice mix.

1 cup sliced apples
1 cup sliced pumpkin
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup water
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 1/2 tablespoon of cornstarch diluted in 1/4 cup of water.

1. Combine the ingredients (excluding the diluted cornstarch) in a saucepan over medium, cooking until everything is tender.
2. Whisk in the diluted cornstarch mixture.
3. Let it cook additionally for about a minute, and pour the mixture into individual containers, and let it cool down before you eat it! I used a wine glass for a classy look :).

You can also add dash of Greek yogurt or  heavy whipping cream on top as well as walnuts!
