Spicy Cranberry Sauce
This interesting twist on traditional cranberry sauce is spiked with hot spices: ground ginger, cloves, and black pepper.
1-1/2 cups orange juice
1-1/4 cups sugar
2 packages (12 ounces each) cranberries, fresh or frozen
1 lime, finely chopped with skin, any seeds discarded
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 In a large nonaluminum saucepan, bring the orange juice and sugar to a boil over medium heat. Boil until the sugar has dissolved, about 3 minutes.
2 Add the cranberries, lime, ginger, cloves, pepper, and salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat, reduce to a simmer, and cook, stirring frequently, until the berries have popped and the mixture has thickened, about 15 minutes.
3 Let cool to room temperature. Store the sauce in the refrigerator.
