The round orange Pumpkin has many variations in the German cuisine, and one usage is to make a compote, or "Kompott" as we say in German. You practically can make compote with the most fruit. The Pumpkin Apple compote is a sweet dish and it is served  in Germany often with German Griessbrei (Semolina Pudding), Rice Pudding, or Vanilla Pudding. Happy Cooking!
