My Favorite Cranberry Orange Pecan Compote6 servings +
Ingredients1 cup orange juice
1 cup sugar, white or light brown
3 - 1" wide strips of orange peel
2/3 cup chopped toasted pecans
Into a saucepan bring orange juice and sugar to a boil. Add the cranberries, orange peel, and simmer till the berries start popping and liquid thickens. When ready to cool, thoroughly stir in the toasted pecans to spread evenly. Leave the peel in or remove if you wish. The liquid will thicken more while cooling. Store in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator until you need to serve. Serving suggestion: top with some grated orange rind and sprinkled chopped toasted pecans. This will be colorful and let the guests know exactly what's in the compote.
