Serves 4
Each serving equals 1 cup of fruit or vegetables

• ¼ cup raisins
• 2 Tbsp sugar

• 4 Tbsp low-fat whipped cream
• ½ tsp cinnamon
• ½ tsp powdered butter substitute
• dash of nutmeg

Combine wine, raisins, and sugar in saucepan. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 5 minutes.

Add gooseberries; poach until just barely tender, about 5 to 8 minutes. Do not let syrup bubble or berries may burst.

Transfer fruit gently with a slotted spoon to a serving dish.

Add apples to syrup and poach until gently tender, approximately 5 to 10 minutes. Do not over cook, or the apples will be mushy.
