Cranberry Relish

Ingredients:

16 oz bag of fresh cranberries
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup orange juice
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 t grated ginger

Spoon Mage™ Notes:

If you prefer, sub in orange zest for the juice and replace the juice with water. Or sub in Grand Marnier for the juice. If you don’t have fresh ginger, use 1/8 t ground ginger. If you really hate sweet relish, reduce the sugar by half, but taste it before removing it from the stove in case you regret that. As long as it is still warm, the sugar will incorporate. Or, if you prefer – use honey or your favorite sugar substitute. Read More
