6 apples, diced
4 tablespoons butter - divided use

1/2 cup sliced almond
4 large eggs
1 cup half and half
1 tablespoon honey

Cooking Directions:

  1. In a large saucepan, combine white wine, sugar, and water. Bring to a boil and add peeled, cored pears. Reduce the heat and poach the pears until tender. Cool, drain, and chop; reserving the liquid.

Drain the raisins, adding the liquid to the skillet and the raisins to the pear mixture. Cook the liquid in the skillet until reduced to a thick syrup. Add the syrup to the pear mixture with 1/4 cup honey and sliced almonds; stir gently to combine.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, half-and-half, 1 tablespoon honey, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, tarragon, and vanilla.
  4. Dip cinnamon-raisin bread slices in the egg mixture and cook on a hot skillet in 3 tablespoons butter until golden brown. Serve with the fruit compote.
