Cranberry compote recipe in February you ask? Well, yes! I’ve never got round to posting the recipe in a run up to Christmas plus my Cranberry Compote with Rosemary is not only for Christmas, oh no! It is a perfect accompaniment well beyond the festive season and as it happens, it is perfect for not only savoury but also sweet delights!
This recipe is so easy and so delicious that you will think twice before cracking open that shop bought sauce you’ve got in the cupboard. It is simply beyond compare despite its simplicity. The season in which you can source fresh cranberries in the UK is very short but fret not as this recipe can also be made using frozen fruit which is widely available.
I have gone for orange juice to cook the cranberries in but feel free to use just water or half water and half juice. You could even use some cranberry juice! If you want things a bit more zesty you might want to add an orange peel or two, it’s entirely up to you. The citrusy tang and woodiness of rosemary comes through ever so subtly and then it hits you! It really is delicious! Make sure you don’t put rosemary in too early though as it can make your compote quite bitter (trust me, I’ve been there, done that).
What to serve Cranberry Compote with Rosemary with!
If you are wondering what you can serve this delight with beside the obvious choice of Christmas turkey, I would highly recommend it as accompaniment to any Sunday roast (chicken and duck in particular), cold meats and of course sweet delights! Yes I know, Cranberry Compote with Rosemary might not be associated with desserts in particular but I encourage you to give it a go. I absolutely love it on crepe style pancakes, very simple yet so delicious (you can find my foolproof classic pancakes recipe HERE).
I have used this lovely compote in my delicious, easy and super impressive dessert Pancakes (Crepes) with Mascarpone Cream & Cranberry Compote. Perfect for Pancake Day and Valentine’s Day too!
