This is another great recipe to use not just for Thanksgiving, but any time you are serving roasted meat. There is something about the sweet, tart cranberry that compliments most roasted meats very nicely.
Here is what I did this year and thoroughly enjoyed it!
1 pkg fresh cranberries
1 cinnamon stick
1 granny smith apple, peeled and diced
1 orange, zest and juice
1 cup water
1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar
Peel and dice the apple. Zest and juice the orange and add to the pot with cranberries. Add water, sugar and cinnamon stick and bring to a boil. Let the cranberries boil for about 5 minutes and then remove from heat and allow to cool. It will thicken as it cools.
Most people don't add cinnamon to it, it really adds a whole new depth of flavor and I highly recommend it.
