Ingredients

    INGREDIENTS
    2 star anise
    1 cinnamon stick
    6 cardamom pods, crushed with the back of a spoon
    1 apple, quartered and cored
    1 pear, quartered and cored
    1 cup, seedless red grapes (can use 2 cups depending on your calories)
    1/4 cup sugar

Directions

DIRECTIONS
1. Combine 3 cups water with spices in a medium pot over medium-high heat. (If star anise and cardamom are not available you can substitute 4 cloves or a large pinch of powdered nutmeg.)

2. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Add fruit and sugar, return mixture to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes (for firmer fruit, reduce to 5 minutes). The fruit should be just covered by the liquid; if necessary add an additional 1/2 cup water.

3. Serve hot, room temperature or cold with about a 1/4 cup of the poaching liquid poured over each serving. Makes 4 servings
