  4. To prepare couscous, place orange juice and cranberries in a small saucepan over low heat. Bring to a simmer. Pour into a bowl and set aside to cool completely. Drain.
  5. Bring stock to a boil in a large saucepan. Stir in butter and oil. Remove from heat. Stir in couscous. Stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff and separate grains with a fork.
