Not everyone in my family liked cranberry sauce with their turkey at thanksgiving, so I set about to find a substitute that the whole family would enjoy. This herbed fruit compote was just the ticket! I now use it year around on turkey, and chicken but it's especially good on pork. Even if you like cranberry sauce I think you'll find this compote a yummy change of pace.
