Make this holiday side dish recipe early in the week--it's much better once the flavors have a chance to meld.
1 (12-ounce) bag cranberries, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 large Granny Smith apple, cored, seeded, and chopped
1 (1-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and thinly slivered
1 cup apple juice
1 cup sugar
4 whole cloves
How to Make It
Combine all ingredients in a 3 1/2-quart saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 3 minutes or until some cranberries begin to pop and all sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat, and allow to cool. Store, refrigerated, in an airtight container until ready to use.
I have made this for my family every year since I first found the recipe in the November 2005 issue of Cottage Living. One very important step was left out of the recipe as it is written here: be sure to remove the cloves before serving.
