  • About


  • ½ cup (100 g) lightly packed light brown sugar
  • Finely grated zest of 1 orange and juice of 2 oranges
  • 9 ounces (250 g) fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon coarse mustard
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • A pinch of sea salt


Combine everything in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Lower the heat. Let simmer for 8 to 10 minutes, until the berries begin to burst.

Remove from the heat and let cool. Remove the rosemary sprigs before serving, but leave them in long enough for the flavor.

Covered in a clean jar in the fridge, the compote will keep for weeks.
