Nobody's fool

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups Cranberries
½ cup Granulated sugar
½ cup Brown sugar
\N \N Juice of 2 oranges
\N \N Grated rind of 1 orange
2 \N Whole star anise
1½ cup Whipping cream
\N \N Orange rind for garnish
\N \N Mint sprigs for garnish

(From "Gooey Desserts, the Joy of Decadence") Combine all ingredients except cream and garnishes in a saucepan.

Heat to a boil over medium heat, stirring now and then to prevent sticking. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes. Chill.

Cranberry sauce may be stored in refrigerator as long as 1 week. Whip cream in a cold bowl with cold beaters, to stiff peaks. To make ahead, put cream into a cheesecloth-lined wire mesh strainer set over a bowl. Refrigerate, covered. May be prepared as much as 6 hours ahead of serving. To serve, fold ¾ cup of the chilled cranberry sauce, leaving streaks, into the whipped cream. Spoon into a stemmed serving dish. Garnish with orange rind and mint.
