Hot Cranberry and Apple Compote/ aka: Cranberry Jones

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it’s time to start planning the menu for the big event! This is one of our favorites, discovered at my first holiday meal with my husband’s family. Trust me, this will become a family tradition at your house too. We call it Cranberry Jones, but our guests just call it delicious!!

Spray a large ovenproof dish with cooking spray.

3 cups apples, peeled, cored and cut into chunks

3 cups cranberries

¾ cup sugar

¾ cup brown sugar

¾ cup oatmeal

¾ cup pecan pieces

¾ cup raisins

1 stick melted butter

Toss ingredients into the pan. Drizzle with melted butter.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes, stirring ½ way through.

Enjoy!

This can be made in advance, baked part way, and reheated.
