CITRUS AND SPICE CRANBERRY SAUCE
Burnin' Beak Citrus And Spice Cranberry Sauce
A classic side dish served at Thanksgiving and Christmas, fresh cranberry sauce gets a spicy kick from our Burnin' Beak Mild or Hot Habanero pepper jelly.
This recipe is exceptionally good with its cinnamon and cloves, lemon and orange zest and Cointreau. The Cointreau, an orange flavored liquor, gives this cranberry sauce richness and depth of flavor. The citrus zests give it a bright pop. And, the cinnamon and cloves add some spicy, earthy notes.
Our favorite way to serve it is aside roasted turkey but it's also a wonderful compliment to chicken, Cornish hens, duck, quail or pheasant. Stuffing, mashed potatoes and fresh, sauteed green beans would really round out the meal.
If you've never made your own cranberry sauce, this is the recipe for you. It's really easy and fool-proof. You'll ditch the canned stuff for good!
