Sure, America needs this condiment to cut through our rich, buttery Thanksgiving meal and cleanse our palates, but isn’t it also what makes the leftover turkey sandwich amazing? I think so! As a side note, we also spread our Cacia’s Bakery rolls with this Chipotle Goat Cheese Spread a la Pati Jinich. The combination of smokey chipotles and sweet-tart cranberries is a winner and our citrus-kissed turkey loved it.
Makes 2 cups
12 oz bag organic cranberries, picked through and rinsed
3/4 cup water
3/4 cup organic sugar
1/4 tsp salt or to taste (optional)
Bring water, sugar, and salt (if using, we didn’t) to a boil in medium saucepan over medium heat. Add cranberries and simmer until slightly thickened and two-thirds of the berries have burst, about 5 minutes. Transfer to serving bowl (or pint ball jar) and cool completely, at least 1 hour. Sauce can be refrigerated 1 week.
