Cranberry Compote


I make this recipe each year for Thanksgiving and Christmas, its a wonderful recipe and so easy to make.  If you are not a lover of Cranberry sauce from a can give this a try.

1 20oz. can pineapple chunks or tidbits
2 cups sugar
4 cups fresh cranberries
1 cup golden raisins
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. ground allspice
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup pecans or walnuts

Drain the juice from the canned pineapple into a saucepan and set the pineapple aside.  Add sugar, cranberries, raisins, spices and salt to pineapple juice and bring to a boil.  Reduce to a simmer for 25 minutes until thick, stir occasionally during the process. Remove from heat and add pineapple and nuts.  This is wonderful served cold or warm, I sprinkle a few fresh pecans on top when I serve this dish. It will keep in the refrigerator for a long time.

I'm using a wreath I made click here that I posted last month from leftover holiday nuts.  It looks beautiful in a clear glass stemmed bowl as the color is very festive.

Happy Thanksgiving to all.

This looks perfect! Every year my cranberry sauce fails to set up. I think I may just give this a whirl. Thanks for the recipe! If I make it, I'll let you know how it turns out. :) Wish me luck!
