Easy Fresh Cranberry Compote

This is really easy to whip up, and it's great with pork, as well as traditional poultry holiday fare.

- 2 c. fresh cranberries

- 1/2 c water or chicken broth

- 1/4 c SF orange marmalade (I like Polaner's w/fiber, it has lots of zest in it) or SF apricot or peach jam

- 1 tsp dijon mustard (you can add a little horseradish too, if you like a little zing)

- sweetener to taste.

Over medium-high heat, bring all ingredients except sweetener to a slow boil until the berries 'pop', then lower the heat to low, smashing the berries and combining ingredients well. Simmer for 5 mins. or so until thickened, but still 'chunky', sweeten to taste, if desired. Serve warm or cold.
