Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.


Amaretto Compote

desserts, italian

2 cup water
1 cup pitted prunes
1 cup dried appricots
2 medium red pears, cored and sliced
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup amaretto
1 teaspoon shredded lemon peel

In a medium saucepan combine water, prunes, and apricots. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat and let stand for 15 min. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup liquid. Leave prunes and apricots on the side. In the 1/2 cup liquid, combine pears, Amaretto, sugar and lemon peel. Cover and simmer 10 minutes until the pears are crisp-tender. Stir in prunes and apricots and heat through. Serve warm over vanilla ice-cream or frozen yogurt. Also makes a wonderful topping for pound cake.
