Pomegranate, Cranberry & Pear Compote


12 Oz Cranberries (Fresh or Frozen)

1 Pear, diced

1 /4 orange juice

1/4 cup water

1/4 teaspoon cloves

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ginger

1/4 cup sugar (or to taste, depending on how sweet or tart you want your sauce!)

Seeds of 1 Pomegranate

Orange Zest for garnish


Rinse the cranberries, and place them, along with the diced pear and orange juice and sugar in a medium sauce pan.  Add spices.  Bring to a boil, then reduce heat so that the sauce is at a steady simmer.  Simmer for 10 minutes, or until it has reached the desired consistency.  If you would like a thinner sauce, add more water or juice. Let cool.  Stir in pomegranate seeds, and garnish with 2-3 teaspoons of orange zest.  Enjoy!
