fresh or frozen cranberries
jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
I love this recipe, and have made this for years, and have a couple of modifications. First, you have to cook the sherry off. If you follow the directions and remove from heat after adding the sherry, the alcohol taste is so overpowering that it's virtually inedible. Cooking it for a few minutes longer allows the sherry flavor to shine without the alcohol flavor killing it. Second, I always remove all seeds from the jalapenos and use just one. It's still spicy, but not overpowering. I like this best as a condiment on sandwiches, rather than a relish.
I love spicy foods and go through a bottle of hot sauce frequently. However -
I fixed this recipe today and had to throw it away. It was too spicy and would overpower
any white meat. I guess you could use this in some noveau Mexican cuisine - but
I will not make this again...sorry.
I enjoy spicy food, but my family does not. This recipe was a nice balance for everyone. The tart, sweet cranberries match up well with spicy Jalapenos. Yum!
This was the only cranberry sauce we used at Thanksgiving this year and everyone enjoyed it. I used fresh cranberries and fresh jalapeno peppers, made it the night before and refrigerated it all night. No one thought it was spicy and the green and red colors added a festive look!
Veryy Good!!! I loved the kick of jalapeno at the end..... Couple of tips...use a big pan, the sugar syrup bubbles a lot and will over flow. It requires more than 10 minutes (roughly 30 mintes) to cook down. Also I used a potato masher at the end to break down the cranberries - gave a very nice texture.
Perfect!!! The only thing I changed was leaving out the sherry and subbing cranberry apple juice instead. It's tasty with a slight hint of heat. I made this for another recipe I plan on making later this week. A nice twist and will give the kick I was looking for to the chops I plan on making with this!!!!
This sounds like something my mom found in a magazine a few years ago. I wanted her recipe, but she couldn't remember which magazine it was in. I'm planning on using this holiday season at least once but hopefully this will give me a use for the fresh jalapenos from my garden.
Excellent. Thanks for sharing. I'm fortunate to live in an area where I pick wild cranberries and that is what I used. My husband is the hot food fan, he absolutely loves it. I had to make a second batch tonight. I went one step further and actually canned it (processed in hot water bath).. now I'm ready for Christmas. My daughter tried some by mistake, thought she was putting jam on a bagel with cream cheese... now the sauce has another fan! Once again, thanks for sharing.
