Recipe: Make cranberry-apple compote
This pleasantly sweet, slightly tart-tasting compote has been a holiday tradition in our house for years. It’s easy to assemble and tastes great spooned over turkey or served for dessert, garnished with chopped, toasted nuts. I prefer Granny Smith or Pink Lady apples for their high pectin content, which acts as a natural thickener. If you use another variety you may need to thicken the sauce with arrowroot.
Serve warm or chilled. Garnish with nuts, if desired. Refrigerate and use within 5 days.
