I didn't know whether to call this, "Cranberry Compote," Or "Cranberry Sauce," soo.... Cranberry Compote Sauce it is! Some of y'all may LOVE canned cranberry. I know there's some of you weirdos out there (kidding :P ). But every year when that cranberry comes to the table I wish I made my dang own. And I've been majorly procrastinating because I should've made this around Thanksgiving, but point is... I made it! And it's soooo easy. Here we go...
-1 12oz bag cranberries
-1 cup coconut sugar
-1 cup water
-2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
-dash of pink Himalyan sea salt
-dash of cinnamon
Instructions: In a pot, whisk together water, coconut sugar and apple cider vinegar and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Once boiling, whisk in cinnamon and salt. Then add in cranberries and lower to a simmer for 10 mins, stirring occasionally. You will hear the cranberries poppin'. After about 10 minutes, use a potato masher (or a fork like I did) to mash up the cranberries to desired consistency. Turn off heat, but leave the pot on the burner to cool for 20-30 minutes. Enjoy as a jam on toast or sauce on meats!
