The value contribution of the great red fruits to maintaining urinary tract and bladder health was often discussed. In fact, the power of efficacy is still open. Other positive aspects can hardly be argued away 🙂
Fresh cranberries contain a lot of vitamin C, vitamin A and antioxidants!
Our aromatic wonder berries make a fine compote that will enrich your food on your plate in autumn and winter. You can also add it to your muesli or use it for baking!
And isn’t it wonderful: You don’t need much time and only a few ingredients.
How long do you cook cranberries? The fruits burst open during cooking: plop, plop… That sounds almost like preparing popcorn. Now you can let the compote steep for another 10 minutes and then fill it up.
1pclemonI use an organic lemon for juice and lemon peel abrasion.
1pc vanilla pod, the vanilla pulp
Prepare the ingredients.
Wash 1 kg cranberries well.
Finely grate the peel of 1 lemon and set aside the lemon peel for further use. Then squeeze out the lemon.
Halve a vanilla pod with a sharp knife. Scratch out the vanilla pulp with a knife.
Add the vanilla pulp and 500 g brown sugar.
Break open a cinnamon stick lengthwise with your hand and halve it.
Add 2 pieces of star anise.
Add 2 cloves.
Put all ingredients in a high pot.
Heat cranberries, lemon juice, sugar, 300 ml water and spices on the stove. Stir with a wooden spoon while cooking.
When the berries burst, reduce the heat and allow to steep gently for about 20 minutes to develop the flavour. Stir at least once every 5 minutes.
Arrange for direct consumption in small bowls. Remove cinnamon, anise and cloves.
To preserve the compote, pour it into clean preserving jars while it is boiling hot and screw together quickly. Enjoy your meal!
If your schedule allows it, leave the compote next to the stove for a good 2-4 hours after cooking to mature. The aromas will develop even better.
Then heat up again strongly. The fruit preparation should boil for a good 3-5 minutes. Then pour into the clean preserving jars and quickly close with a screw cap.
Let the glasses cool down and hide them 🙂
