Tart cranberries and sweet orange pair beautifully with a little bit of jalapeno heat in this unique cranberry sauce recipe. This recipe can be prepared up to 4 days ahead of time. Refrigerate until use.
12 ounces fresh cranberries
zest of 1 orange, finely grated
juice of 2 oranges
2 tablespoons tequila
1/2 cup sugar
1-2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and finely minced
Makes about 1 1/2 Cups
Add enough water to the orange juice to make one cup of liquid.
Combine cranberries, orange zest, juice and water, tequila, and sugar in a large pot. Bring to a slow boil, stirring occasionally. When the cranberries begin to pop, add the chopped jalapeños and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently. If the sauce seems a little thick, add a bit more water. Remove from heat, transfer to a bowl and chill.
