New England Cranberry Orange Compote
Ingredients
1 1/4
cups water
1 1/4
cups sugar
1/3
cup maple syrup
1/4
cup orange juice
1/4
cup orange rind, cut into thin strips

tablespoon grated orange zest
2
tablespoons coarsely chopped candied ginger
1
cup walnuts, pecans, or your favorite nut, coarsely chopped
