Winter fruit doesn't have to mean just apples, oranges, bananas, and pears. Try using frozen summer fruits in your favorite recipes, like this one, as well. The topping for compote comes together easily by tossing together flour brown sugar, oatmeal, and ground ginger. Cut in the butter until that classic crumb forms. Sprinkle it over pears, fresh orange juice, and frozen blueberries, then let it bake for 45 minutes until the fruit is cooked down and the topping is nice and golden brown. It's the perfect balance of sweet and savory and is certainly a crowd-pleaser that you can make before any dinner party.
