Killer Kranberry Sauce

I like this one very much. Of course, if your family tradition to open a can and you're OK with having that kind of family far be it from me to criticize. This is something I like to keep on hand. It's also very good with toasted bagels and cream cheese.


1-1/2 C sugar
1 large navel orange
1/2 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
4 Cups cranberries (that's one bag)
1/2 Cup (2 oz.) toasted pecans

Juice the orange and put it into a heavy saucepan. Grate the peel and put it with the ginger and sugar in with the juice and heat over a medium flame until the sugar is completely dissolved. Increase the flame to a slow boil, add the cranberries and boil until they pop. Remove from the heat, stir in the toasted pecans. Chill. Done.

A variation to this is to add a kiss of Gran Marnier, Triple Sec or Ruby Port with the orange juice. Another cool thing to do for presentation is to mould it. Of course, you all have moulds lying about don't you? If the cans are what your people are used to having you could be all sneaky and chill this in a can. That way you won't have to fight that whole contempt prior to investigation that can happen when traditions are bucked.

Update: This recipe is highly recommended. And for the record, it won't last a month! Or two weeks even.
