You can also make a dessert gel with cooked fruit. While you make the gel, stew fruit together in a separate sauce pan (apples are always a good choice), and add cinnamon, vanilla, chopped nuts, and sweetener to taste. Brighten it with lemon zest or orange zest or lemon juice if you like. Combine with the gel, and let it all cool. Chill overnight, or until set. Serve with whipped cream.
