Jalapeno Cranberry Sauce

Jalapeno Cranberry Sauce

I love the classic cranberry sauce on Thanksgiving. Cranberry goes great with many, many things. What I love more than the classic cranberry sauce, is classic recipes with a twist. This one has a spicy twist, and it is delicious. You can eat it simply as a side, as you would with normal cranberry sauce. My ideas for this were to put it on a wheel of brie, wrap the brie in pastry dough, and make a baked brie with it. Last year, I made my baked brie with brown sugar and craisins in the pastry puff. I think the spicy, sweet and creamy flavors would be to die for though. I am making my baked brie on Thanksgiving for an app, so I will post and let you all know how it is!

My mom every year, whenever she makes cranberry sauce, talks about how simple it is to make. It is a mystery why people buy canned sauce, when homemade is so easy to make. Plus homemade tastes so much better! After Thanksgiving, I plan on making a “leftover” sandwich involving this sauce. I told you that this sauce can be much more than a simple side dish.

Jalapeno Cranberry Sauce

Ingredients

  • 1 12 oz. package Cranberries
  • 1 c. Water
  • 1 c. Sugar
  • 2 Jalapenos, diced and mainly seeded (leave a few seeds for the spicy flavor)

Instructions

  • Pour your 1 c. water and 1 c. sugar into a sauce pan. Bring that to a boil and pour your cranberries and diced jalapenos in.
  • Bring that mixture to a boil, then reduce your heat. Continue to stir until it comes to your desired consistency.
  • I preferred mine to be a tad bit chunkier than normal. You can smush the cranberries while you're cooking as well so it isn't very chunky.
