Recipe by: Jane Brody's Good Food Gourmet
Cut pears and orages into 1/2 inch pieces. Cut each apricot into 6 pieces.
In a large saucepan, bring the water and sugar to a boil, stirring the mixture occasionally.
Stir in pears and apricots, reduce the heat, and simmer the fruit in the uncovered pan for 5 minutes.
Stir in the oranges, and continue simmering the fruit in the uncovered pan for 2 minutes.
Stir in the cranberries, and cook them over medium heat in the uncovered pan for 5 minutes, stirring the compote occasionally.
Jane says: "This is a versatile dish, delicious warm, cold or at room temperature; with meat, poultry, pancakes, cottage cheese, or yogurt; as an appetizer, condiment, dessert or between-meal snack"
