In the cupboard...or on the counter...I had some fruit that was getting really ripe and I was not sure when I could use it. So this afternoon I put together this delicious concoction by using these fruits as well as raiding the cupboard and the freezer. Although delicious just by itself, methinks this would go well with breaded pork chops, a pork roast, a roasted chicken...or maybe even at Thanksgiving with the turkey. Here is what I did:
1 12-oz package of cranberries (frozen or fresh)
1 Navel orange, peeled, separated into sections
1 ripe peach, not peeled, chopped into bite size pieces
1 ripe pear (Bosc), peeled and chopped into pieces
1/3 cup golden cranberries
1 cup orange juice (I toyed around with the idea of 1 cup brandy which I think would work beautifully_
1 cup sugar PLUS 2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Allspice
Combine all ingredients in medium sauce pan. Stir to combine. Using medium heat, bring to a boil stirring occasionally for about 10 minutes.
Reduce heat to low and cook another 45 minutes, stirring occasionally and until ingredients are well combined. Taste and adjust seasonings accordingly.
Cool to room temperature and then refrigerate.
