Cranberry Sauce

A few years ago we were having a Relief Society luncheon in November and were planning out a menu.  A little old lady piped up that she had the best cranberry sauce recipe and that is what we should make.  So we did and it is.  Not perhaps a true sauce but more of a compote, it is delicious served on turkey, in sandwiches or as I like to do s served on top of oatmeal or yogurt.  And as a bonus it makes your house smell wonderful and keeps for a week or two in the fridge.

Cranberry Sauce - Serves 8

1 package cranberries
1 c sugar
1 c water
Put these ingredients into a pan and bring to a boil.  Cook until cranberries "pop".

Reduce heat to low and add to the pan:
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp salt
1 Granny Smith apple - peeled, cored and chopped
1 pear - peeled, cored and chopped
zest of 1 orange and juice

Cook on low until the fruit softens.  Store covered in the fridge.
