    Nice article
    When I make a batch (3 jars) of cranberry compote, I just chop up one apple & toss it in the pan with the pound of frozen berries (and sugar). It sets up great!

    What do you call compote?

    Chunky fruit(s) cooked down with sugar; served on the side, usually berry with roasts, apple with pork/poultry. Yummy!

    Got it. If I made that with cranberries, I would just call it cranberry sauce. Calling it compote makes it sound fancy! BTW, cranberry sauce will set up without any added apple. I don't generally make even regular applesauce. The Handsome Husband like his fruit raw or in pies.

    I was watching a cooking show recently and one of the know it all's on the show, called for a recipe that has COMPOST in it! She meant compote but it was funny to us gardener types!

    That does work. We used that exact same article to do it. The only thing I suggest is that you will need to experiment with how much pectin to add when you make jelly. If you add too little, the jelly never sets. If you add too much, it gets hard as a bowling ball. We had one batch of pear jelly that was so hard, you could not even put a fork into it!

    That is hilarious but only because this summer I made some plum jam that was just about that firm. Fortunately I had enough plums for another batch and I mixed the first batch in. That jam was made with just the pectin in the jam. Long cooking jam does darken, and the flavor is slightly carmelized, but it is possible to make jam out of almost any fruit that way.
