Stone Fruit Compote

Here's a nice way to use up the last of the peaches or other stone fruit of the season. I don't have the photography gear (or skill) to make compote look good, but I promise that was what was in the bowl (along with several scoops of ice cream!). I actually enjoyed it with oatmeal almost better than the ice cream.

3-4 cups coarsely chopped stone fruit, such as peaches, nectarines, and plums (about 3/4 pound total), dried or fresh
2-3 tablespoons honey
pinch of salt
2-3 cups water, start with 1 and add more as needed
1 small cinnamon stick

Put everything in a medium sauce pan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil then turn down heat to simmer 15-20 minutes or until fruit is completely soft.
