Fresh Cranberry Compote

Ingredients
2
12 ounce bag fresh cranberries
2
oranges, seeded and coarsely chopped
1
large Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored, and coarsely chopped
3/4
cup Grand Marnier or orange juice
1
cup white sugar
2
whole cinnamon sticks
1/2
teaspoon fresh shaved nutmeg

Directions

  1. Place cranberries, oranges, and apple in a food processor (in batches if needed). Pulse 8 to 10 times or until mixture is coarsely chopped. Once pulsed, transfer to a large bowl and add the Grand Marnier, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Mix well to incorporate, cover with plastic, and let stand at room temperature for at least 6 hours or, ideally, overnight (refrigerate if using orange juice rather than Grand Marnier). This will allow the fruit to macerate and break down into a sauce. After 6 hours, taste and adjust sweetness with additional sugar as desired. Refrigerate and store up to 2 weeks. Remove cinnamon sticks before serving. Makes 8 to 10 servings.

From the Test Kitchen

If desired, rather than using the whole oranges, finely shred the peel and chop the fruit, omitting the pith.
