Orange Cranberry Compote Notes

I developed this recipe which is based on basic homemade cranberry sauce. The orange flower water is the secret ingredient, adding a distinctive floral scent to the dish.

  • 12 ounce bag fresh cranberries
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • zest and juice of one orange
  • up to 1 cup bottled orange juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons orange flower water
  • 2 teaspoons Coitreau or Grand Marnier liqueur
Serves / Yields


Preparation Instructions

Rinse and pick over the cranberries. Add just enough bottled orange juice to the fresh juice to yield 1 cup of liquid. Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, stir to dissolve sugar, reduce heat and simmer uncovered, for 10 min. or until thickened. Transfer to a dish, and cool to room temperature, uncovered. Cover and refrigerate overnight

Helpful Hints
