    total time: 20 mins

  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 12 dried apricots, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 cup sweet white wine, such as Moscato
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated peeled fresh ginger

Cook's Note

Make up to three days ahead and refrigerate. Before serving, thin compote with up to 1/4 cup water, if necessary.


  1. Step 1

    In a small saucepan, bring cranberries, apricots, wine, and 1/2 cup water to a rapid simmer over medium. Cook, stirring occasionally, until liquid is almost absorbed and fruit is softened, 10 minutes. Stir in ginger and season with salt, pepper, and vinegar. Serve at room temperature.
