Cranberry and Mango Compote

This recipe serves:  12
1 pound fresh cranberries, washed
2 cups sugar
1 cup water
2 large ripe mangoes, peeled and diced
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup orange flavored liquor such as Triple Sec, Mandarine or Grand Marnier
Cooking Instructions
1. Combine the cranberries, sugar and water in a medium size, acid resistant saucepan. Bring to a very slow simmer over medium heat. Stir only to mix the cranberries that rise to the top to minimize the mashing of the fruit.

2. Allow to cook until the berries become very tender and the cranberries become less bitter, about 30 minutes. Add the mango, vanilla and liquor and return to a simmer.

3. Remove from the heat and transfer to a serving dish. Store under refrigeration.

NOTE: Makes a terrific relish to add to breakfast pancakes mixed with syrup for French toast.
