Winter Fruit Compote


Winter Fruit Compote

1 (12-oz.) bag frozen cranberries                               1/3 cup sugar

¾ cup water                                                                3 large red grapefruits

½ cup orange juice                                                     Pinch of cinnamon

Combine cranberries, water, orange juice, sugar, and cinnamon in a medium saucepan.  Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.   Cook until the cranberries are tender and begin to pop, adding more water if needed.  Transfer mixture to a bowl, cover, and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.  Remove the skin and all of the white pith from the grapefruits.  Cut the segments from their membranes.  Combine grapefruit segments with the chilled cranberry mixture, stir to blend well, and serve.

Serve by itself or with low-fat frozen yogurt.
