I absolutely love Thanksgiving...especially all the fabulous food!  One of my favorite condiments is Spicy Cranberry Sauce. 

Ingredients

12 Ounces Fresh Cranberries (1 bag)

1 Jalapeno pepper, finely diced

1 Tablespoon Crystallized Ginger, minced

3/4 Cup Orange Juice

1 Tablespoon grated orange peel

1/2 Cup water

1/2 Cup Sugar

Tablespoon Red Wine Vinegar (optional)

1 Teaspoon Vegetable Oil

1 Pinch Salt

Directions

Add oil to a saucepan over medium heat and add jalapeno peppers.  Cook diced peppers until they start to soften.  This usually takes a few minutes.  Then add your cranberries and cook for about five minutes.  They will begin to burst.  This is when you will add your ginger, orange juice, grated orange peel, water, sugar and vinegar.  As the cranberries begin to cook start mashing the cranberries with the back of a spoon.  Cook until thick which usually takes ten to fifteen minutes.  You can serve it warm and cool.  I like both!
