Apple-Cranberry Compote

Look for cranberry-orange sauce near the applesauce in the canned fruit aisle of your supermarket. If you can't find it, 1 (16-ounce) can whole-berry cranberry sauce will also work.

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and quartered
  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • Garnishes: orange rind strips, fresh rosemary sprigs
