A spiced-up version of traditional cranberry sauce that works well with a simple, roasted turkey.

Ingredients

1 pound cranberries

2 cups sugar

2 jalapeño, seeded and finely chopped

2 tablespoons minced ginger

1/2 cup orange juice or water

1 teaspoon salt

Directions

Combine all the ingredients in a medium-sized saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat.

Reduce the heat to low. Cook the mixture uncovered, stirring occasionally, until most of the cranberries pop open and the mixture thickens slightly, about 15 minutes. Cool.

Refrigerate until ready to serve. The sauce can be made up to a week in advance.

Cranberry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
