Dried compote is an ideal drink for Christmas tables to help digestion. It is also an obligatory part of Christmas tables.

Figs are the treasury of strengthening calcium bones. They have it almost as much as a glass of milk. They are also the best source of fibre of all dried fruits. They are also rich in potassium pressure reducing and magnesium stress relieving.

  • several pieces of dried apples
  • several pieces of dried pears
  • 3-5 carnations
