Simply heat fresh or frozen cranberries, sugar, apple juice, and bourbon in a saucepan until it thickens. Let the compote cool, and store it in a covered container in the refrigerator until you’re ready for the feast. Ingredients 1 12-ounce bag cranberries, fresh or frozen (3½ cups) ¾ cup sugar ½ cup apple juice ¼ cup bourbon Directions In a saucepan, combine the cranberries, sugar, apple juice, and bourbon. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until the cranberries begin to burst and the sauce thickens, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool before serving.
