Here is the one I use:

1 1/2 c. orange marmalade

2/3 c. orange juice

1 cinnamon stick, broken in nalf

12 oz. bag cranberries

Combine the first 3, bring to boil.

Mix in cranberries, return to a boil.

Reduce heat to medium, simmer til berries burst and sauce thickens. (about 5 minutes). Put into a bowl for cooling.

I usually do this in the morning so when the dinner is done they've been cooling for the day.

Also don't let the orange scare you off. There isn't that much of an orange flavor.

Good Eats, Kid

P.s. the original recipe called for fresh Italian parsley to be stired in after cooling. And to season with black pepper. I've always skipped this step.

Here's my recipe that is always a hit and the jala pepper gives it a great flavor. Also after making it, taste for flavors as it may need a tad bit more sugar, etc

Cranberry Salsa

(Great with Baked or Deep Fried Turkey)

Makes about 2 cups, Serves 4-6

½ Bag of fresh or frozen cranberries(about 1 heaping cup)

2 teaspoons grated orange zest

¼ cup finely chopped onion

1-2 large oranges peeled membranes removed

1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro or coriander(available at Cub)

1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger(can use bottled)

1 tablespoon or about 1 small to medium chopped jalapeno pepper

½ cup sugar

Chop cranberries coursely in food processor. Peel oranges and coursely chop in food processor remove all membranes before adding to bowl. The juice that is produced from chopping oranges should be added to bowl also. Add remaining ingredients. Try to allow flavors to blend overnight, serve room temp.

Heres my families favorite:

1# cranberries

1 orange

start with one cup of sugar, add more to taste

Cut orange into small chunks, peel and all

Place in blender with cranberries and sugar and pulse until orange and cranberries are coarse chopped

Refrigerate and enjoy. No cooking, simple and easy

For those who are diabetics, you may use half a cup of sugar and half a cup of splenda.

    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
