Lyn’s Cranberry Compote

Cranberry sauce is something we love and every year we try another recipe this year a repeat, one we tried way back in 2002 from YankeeMagazine recipe and liked. With our own twist of course.

Yield: 18-20 servings

This tangy cranberry compote is a great way to refresh your taste buds mid-meal.


  • 1 cup dried cranberries (you can substitute raisins)
  • 1 12-ounce package cranberries
  • 1 cup maple syrup (or sugar)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 3/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Garnish: orange zest


In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine all ingredients. Cover mixture and cook 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool in pan. Transfer to a glass jar with an airtight lid, cover, and refrigerate. When ready to serve, pour compote into a serving dish and garnish with orange zest.
