I'm not sure if I'm sad or relieved that I never get to host Thanksgiving. Both my mother and mother-in-law won't let go of the reins just yet, which means I don't really cook or decorate for the holiday (sniffle, sniffle), though it also means I don't have to make the house presentable or clean up afterward. Yay!
I do contribute my Cranberry Grape Compote each year. I love making this since it's so easy yet so delicious. It's yummy over oatmeal in the mornings or heated over ice cream too.
(makes a quart or so)
2 bags of fresh cranberries
2 lbs of seedless grapes (red or green, you pick)
1/4 cup water
1/2-1 cup of sugar (sweeten it to your liking)
pinch of salt.
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and cook on medium-high until cranberries begin to pop. Lower the heat and simmer while stirring until cranberries have wilted down and grapes have softened. Let cool, and enjoy!
