Cranberry kumquat compote

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
¼ pounds Kumquats; (about 10)
1 pack (12-oz) fresh or unthawed frozen cranberries (about 3 1/2 cups)
1 cup Water
1 cup Sugar

Can be prepared in 45 minutes or less.

With a sharp thin knife thinly slice kumquats crosswise, removing seeds.

Pick over cranberries. In a small saucepan bring water with sugar to a boil and simmer, stirring until sugar is dissolved, 5 minutes. Add kumquats and simmer 5 minutes. With a slotted spoon transfer kumquats to a bowl. Add cranberries to syrup and simmer 10 minutes. Cool mixture completely.

(Cranberry mixture and kumquats may be made 3 days ahead and chilled in separate airtight containers - so kumquats will retain their color).

Just before serving, stir kumquats into cranberry mixture.

Makes about 3½ cups.
