|Chipotle (left) and regular (righ) homemade cranberry sauce|
I did the sauce pretty similar than a regular homemade cranberry sauce but added chipotle paste, garlic and a little cumin. Here is the recipe for the base sauce as well as the chipotle version.
Ingredients for base:
12 oz of fresh cranberries
1.5 cups of sugar
The juice from half a lemon
A touch of cinamon to taste
For the chipotle, you will also need one big garlic clove (minced), one teaspoon of cumin, chipotke paste to taste - I used 2 spoonsfool for a medium kick.
So here is how to make it.
Wash the cranberries with fresh water, good cranberroes will float and bounce when dropped - this is really fun to see!!!
In a heavy pot put the cranberries, the sugar and thelemon juice and heat on middle heat until sugar melts. Soon you will see the cranberries begin to pop (yes they do pop), and the mixture begins to bubble. Cook for 5 minutes until bubbles are gone.
