Thought I'd post this ooollld recipe - we used to do it for T-giving catering jobs, and people loved it so much we'd even make it in the summer to have with grilled chicken - enjoy!


Makes about 2 1/3 cups

1/ cup water
½ cup sugar
½ cup maple syrup
3T orange juice
2tsp. orange peel
1 – 12 oz. pkg. cranberries, picked clean
2 tsp. minced fresh ginger

Stir together water, sugar, maple syrup and orange juice in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer uncovered, for about 3 minutes, til the sugar is dissolved.

Add cranberries and continue to simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Make sure heat is low enough that the mixture doesn’t burn on the bottom. Stir in ginger and orange peel, and simmer for about six more minutes, till most of the cranberries have popped, and mixture starts to thicken.

Sounds very good and is almost identical to what I do save for the Maple syrup which I will try. I often use Grand Marnier as well. :)
