Once upon a time some foreigners tasted our Ukrainian uzvar – dried fruit kompot. They couldn’t believe that this delicate (and for sure very healthy) drink is made of ordinary apples and pears. `C’est génial` – that was their `sentence`for our uzvar – dried fruit kompot.
Rinse the dried fruit, pour over 3 l of fresh water and let it rest for 1 hour. Then bring it to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer covered for about 1 more hour.
Add to the uzvar – dried fruit kompot sugar or honey to taste (the latter better to add to lukewarn uzvar in order not to spoil its usefulness).
