It's in one of the Middle English cookbooks (I don't remember which one 
at the moment), and a more modernized spelling would be 'compote'. It's 
basically a variety of fruit in a solution of wine/vinegar/honey or some 
variation thereof.

There's also a recipe for 'Garbage', which is a bunch of savory bits in 
a solution. It starts out with chicken feet, so IMNSHO the name made be 
appropriate. ;-)
