Quick & Easy: Classic and modern takes on cranberry sauce



12-oz. bag fresh cranberries

¾ cup packed brown sugar

¾ cup orange juice

Pinch of salt

In a medium saucepan over medium-high, combine the cranberries, brown sugar, orange juice and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the cranberries have popped and softened, 8 to 10 minutes.

Remove the saucepan from the heat and select one of the flavor combinations below:

• Add 1 minced chipotle pepper and 1 tablespoon adobo sauce. Allow to cool, then stir in 3 tablespoons of chopped fresh cilantro.

• Allow to fully cool, then stir in ½ teaspoon truffle oil and 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh chives.

• Stir in ½ cup crumbled well-cooked bacon, 1 teaspoon smoked paprika and an extra ½ cup brown sugar.

• Stir in 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh tarragon and the zest and juice of 1 lemon.

• Stir in 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger and 2 tablespoons sweet white miso.

Makes 8 servings.
