Yummiest, Simplest Cranberry Sauce

Though I won't be cooking a feast tomorrow, (we're mooching from my parents), I contribute my highly-complemented, often-requested cranberry sauce each year, which I found in an issue of Everyday Food a few years back.
I just made it this afternoon, and ended up doubling the recipe, since we're expecting around 25 people. It's so tasty and is equally good with turkey dinner and over hot cereal.
Cranberry Grape Compote
~1 bag fresh cranberries, rinsed
~3 cups seedless red grapes, rinsed
~1 cup sugar (I used a bit less)
~1/8 tsp. salt

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Simmer on medium until cranberries pop. Let cool and transfer to a jar or serving dish. Makes a little over 1 quart.

Enjoy, and Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. I'm totally making this to put in my homemade yogurt! Unless you want to do a giveaway for a jar of yours...JK. Thank you.

  2. It sounds and looks delish. I just bought some fresh cranberry sauce from Trader Joes...I wonder if they will take it back ;)

  3. That sounds delicious. I might have to make this for Christmas. Yum, and I love your labels!

  4. Okay I ran out and got the cranberries and grapes because my mom always serves the can kind and I love cranberries but that jello thing scares me just the sound of it coming out yikes! I think Shana has a good idea with the yogurt..Thank you much...and Happy Thanksgiving.

  5. I have neither had cranberry sauce nor Cranberry compote, but I must say your jars of cranberry compote look delicious!

  6. Looks yummy, I'll have to try it when we get home next week...

  7. Ooo, I've never thought of putting grapes in it...what a great idea

  8. I don't think I've ever even tasted cranberry sauce...but I would totally eat that!

  9. I don't think I've ever even tasted cranberry sauce...but I would totally eat that!

  10. Two things...

    Made this recipe to go along with my cran-apple recipe... huge hit last night! And I made tons purposely, love leftovers :D

    Second, I love the new look :) Noticed your button change immediately and had to check it out. Very nice!
