Holiday Fruit Compote

Yields1 Serving

 4 cups peeled and diced ripe bartlett pears
 2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
 2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
 2 1/2 cups sugar
 2/3 cup orange juice
 1 Tbsp finely grated orange zest
 1 tsp ground ginger
 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
 1/4 tsp ground allspice
 1/4 tsp ground cloves
 1/4 cup orange liqueur (optional)

Bring all ingredients up to a simmer in a large, heavy- bottomed saucepot, stirring often. Simmer for about 15 minutes, until pears are tender and cranberries have popped. Pack into sterilized jars and seal, or store refrigerated for up to 4 weeks.
