Category   Salads - Soups - Sidedishes
Sub Category   None

2 cups cranberries (frozen and thawed or fresh)
3/4 cups of granulated sugar
4 tablespoons of orange juice
Zest of 1/2 orange
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

- Wash the cranberries. - Stir all the ingredients together in a medium saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. - Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5-7 minutes or until the cranberries burst and the sauce thickens. - Allow to cool slightly and transfer to a bowl or jar and allow to cool. - Store in the fridge in an airtight container and serve warm, cold or at room temperature.
TRIED 11/25/2022- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg 1/2 teaspoon cloves - Little too spicy & orange-y
TIPS - Give this cranberry compote some natural spice by adding a tablespoon of grated ginger to the mix. - Warming spices like clove, cinnamon, and nutmeg can be added to create a Fall layer of flavor. - Add blackberries or raspberries to the mix to add more levels of fresh berry flavor. - Instead of orange juice, use the zest and juice of one lemon to create an even more tart and fresh flavor. - When cooking fruit and sugar, the mixture will become very hot and bubbly. Make sure you are protecting yourself as the mixture can cause serious burns. - Let the mixture cool before adding it to containers to prevent the hot liquid from splashing and causing injury. - Always use a sanitized jar or container when storing compote to prevent the spread of bacteria.
CASEY SUGGESTED Use 1/2 granulated sugar and 1/2 granulated sugar to warm up the taste.
