Cooked Cranberry Compote Ready for Serving


Cranberry Compote over Vanilla Yogurt

I recently was part of a team offsite and my coworker Lauren made this. It was a delicious topping to either fruit and yogurt or the Pumpkin Pecan pancakes that I made. Thanks Lauren!


  • 2 apples, cored and diced with skin on (by preference)
  • 1 bag cranberries
  • 1 cup light maple syrup such as sugar free
  • Lemon and Cinnamon or Ginger to taste (Cinnamon is Lauren’s standard but we didn’t have any and used Ginger and it was actually delightful)


  1. Core and dice the apple into rough chunks.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine all the ingredients except lemon and cinnamon / ginger.
  3. Cook over medium heat until most of the cranberries pop.
  4. Add the lemon and cinnamon / ginger to taste.
