I love to keep my kitchen cool during the summer by using my many crockpots.  Most people use their slow cookers for dinner recipes, but why not put your crockpot to work on some fresh Slow Cooker Summer Fruit Compote.  

 

This dessert tastes just like summer.  Serve with your favorite  vanilla ice cream, and you have a dessert your family will be begging for more of. 

 

Slow Cooker Summer Fruit Compote

Ingredients

3 cups fresh pineapple chunks
2 medium pears, cut into 1/2-inch pieces 
2 cups frozen sliced peaches
1 cup frozen pitted cherries
1  cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
2 tablespoon packed dark-brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons cornstarch
