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
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

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.
