* Ingredients:

12 oz. fresh or frozen cranberries (3 c.)

c. dried cranberries or cherries

1 c. granulated sugar

1 c. orange juice

3 T. finely chopped candied ginger, plus 1 T. for garnish

2 t. grated orange peel

6 T. cranberry or orange liqueur or additional orange juice

1 qt. low-fat vanilla frozen yogurt

* Directions:

Place the fresh and dried cranberries, sugar, orange juice, 3
tablespoons ginger, and orange peel in a heavy, nonreactive
saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly to dissolve the
sugar. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, partially covered,
until all the berries have popped and the sauce is lightly
thickened, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the
liqueur. Let cool to room temperature. (You can make the sauce up
to 3 days ahead and refrigerate it. Return it to room temperature
to use, thinning with a little orange juice if it becomes too
thick).

To assemble the parfaits, place three alternate layers each of
frozen yogurt and cranberry mixture in tall sherbet or parfait
glasses. Sprinkle the tops of the parfaits with the remaining 1
tablespoon candied ginger.
