This compote recipe is foolproof, and better still, for a Thanksgiving feast, you can whip the accompaniment up the day before. The sophisticated taste might knock our Bourbon-Cranberry Compote into the adults-only category, but that’s okay by us—more to spread over leftover turkey sandwiches, or to enjoy over ice cream or a bowl of yogurt. Simply heat fresh or frozen cranberries, sugar, apple juice, and bourbon in a saucepan until it thickens up nicely. Let the compote cool, and store it in a covered container in the refrigerator until you’re ready for the feast. Serve the compote cold or at room temperature.
