    A Thanksgiving Cranberry Recipe

    What’s Thanksgiving without cranberries? These tart ruby-red fruits are bursting with flavor and packed with antioxidants. And they’re versatile as well. We’ve gone beyond traditional cranberry sauce to give you a new way to use this flavorful fruit.
    Cranberry Orange Compote (Phase 2)
    This classic compote is the perfect accompaniment for your turkey meat and it makes a flavorful condiment for the next day’s sandwiches (you might want to double this recipe to ensure leftovers). Low in calories, cranberries are also a good source of vitamin C. If you like a sweeter compote, add a little more sugar substitute.
    Make-ahead: The compote can be made up to 1 week in advance and refrigerated in a covered container. Bring to room temperature before serving.
    Makes 8 (3-tablespoon) servings
    Prep time: 5 minutes
    Cook time: 10 minutes
    2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
    1 tablespoon grated orange zest
    1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1 cup water
    1/2 cup granular sugar substitute
    Place cranberries, zest, cinnamon, and water in a medium saucepan over medium heat; stir to combine. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until berries have popped and compote has thickened, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in sugar substitute to taste. Serve at room temperature.

    I try to do something different every year; I always do a cooked sauce because raw relish is too harsh for my taste.

    Among the ones I've done:

    Cranberries and Pears
    Cranberries and Mandarin Oranges
    Cranberries and Port Wine with Cinnamon
    Cranberries with Apples and Nuts

    This year, I think, cranberries and fresh ginger....
