Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. Hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving and lots of good Healthy Food! Among some of the regular fare I am going to try a new recipe called Onion-Cranberry Compote. It is from Sally Fallon's book "Nourishing Traditions". Here is her recipe copied directly from her book:

Onion-Cranberry Compote
Makes 4 cups

2/3 c. yellow raisins
2/3 c. dark raisins
1 1/2 c hot filtered water
2 pounds small white onions, peeled
4 Tbs. butter
3/4 c. white wine vinegar
1 c. dry white wine
3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1 tsp. sea salt
1 2/3 c fresh cranberries

This is an excellent substitute for sugary cranberry relish at Thanksgiving.

Soak raisins in water for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, saute' onions in butter until well coated. Add wine and vinegar and boil down for several minutes. Add raisins with soaking liquid and remaining ingredients except cranberries. Liquid should just cover the onions--if not, add a little water. Simmer, covered, for about 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Remove cover, add cranberries and simmer uncovered for 15 - 30 minutes until liquid has thickened. Let cool. May be made up to 3 days in advance and stored in the refrigerator. Serve at room temperature.

If anyone else makes this please comment on whether you liked it or not.
Thanks! And have a great weekend.
