Orange Cranberry Compote
|2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries, thawed if frozen|
|1 whole cinnamon stick|
|1 small can of mandarin oranges with juice|
|1/4 cup brown sugar|
|1/4 cup orange juice|

This is a delicious “sauce” that goes well with poultry or pork. It may also be drizzled over ice-cream. It is flavored with brown sugar, vanilla, brown sugar, citrus and cinnamon.
- Add all ingredients to a deep sauce pan and using medium high heat bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat to a simmer and using a medium spoon, slightly crush the cranberries.
- Cook for 30-40 minutes until a syrupy consistency forms.
- Allow to cool, remove the cinnamon stick and serve over meats.
