Yikes I Didn't Realize Thanksgiving Is Next Week

So I need to share a couple of our special Turkey Day recipes with you. Today its the cranberry sauce. Hands down, the best cranberry sauce you will ever taste. My grandmother apparently plucked it from the pages of Better Homes and Gardens back in 1994 and tweaked it. It is awesome and it will make a cranberry eater out of anyone.

Cranberry Conserve

1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup butter
2 tsp vinegar
1 large onion, chopped
1 12oz bag of cranberries
1/4 cup apple juice
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp ground cloves
2 1/2 cups sugar
1 jalepeno pepper, chopped

In skillet: Combine brown sugar, butter and vinegar over medium heat stirring constantly - 2 minutes. Add onion and cook on low until tender. Remove from heat. In large pot: Combine all other ingredients and bring to a boil for 5 - 7 minutes stirring contantly. Add skillet contents and cook on low heat. Let cool and chill for 24 hours.

  1. Ugh, tried to clean this up. It was a sloppy cut and paste job from an old email. Hope this looks better and has less typos now.
