Joyce’s Orange Cranberry Sauce


I used to be a “canned cranberry sauce” kinda gal. I will
embarassingly admit that I liked it better than the homemade stuff …
until Joyce won me over wit her delicious orange and grenadine
cranberry compote!! (Pretty much anything with grenadine will get me
to try it out – must be back to my childhood obsession with shirley
temples). I know Thanksgiving is over, but if you are asked in the
future to bring cranberry sauce to anything, you’ve got to keep this
one in mind! And, per Joyce’s suggestion, you can cook it up with
other fruit, such as plums, and use the leftovers to spread on toast,
pancakes, or use with pork. Thanks Joyce!!
