This compote serves as a great complement to our Phyllo Wrapped Baked Brie.

  • 2 Tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 cup red onion, 1/4” diced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cinnamon stick
  • 1 star anise, optional
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 cup red bell pepper, 1/4” diced
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


In a medium saute pan, heat canola oil. Add red onion and saute until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, cinnamon stick, star anise, and bay leaf and saute for 2 minutes. Add red bell pepper and saute for 2 minutes. Add vinegars and reduce liquid by half. Add sugar and simmer about 20 minutes or until a rubber spatula separates the compote cleanly in the middle. Cool.
