    What can I make with fresh cranberries? Something more tart rather than sweet.

    I don't want to put a lot of sugar in it.

    TIA

    Cranberry Compote




    2 Tablespoons of olive oil
    ½ cup of thinely sliced shallots
    2 tablespoons of grated orange rind
    2 teaspoons of minced fresh sage
    ½ cup of orange juice
    ¼ cup of maple syrup


    Heat oil in a medium sauce pan , add shallots , rind and sage, cook for 5 minutes.
    Then add orange juice , syrup and cranberries. Cook for another 5 minutes , cranberries will look like a compote once they have burst. If not cook a few minutes more. It should give you a cup.
    (I like to put a touch of rum at the end of cooking)
    If you feel this still to be too sweet, try adding a bit of lemon juice for more tart
