Thanksgiving Cranberry Relish

Happy Thanksgiving!

IMG_3570Thanks to cranberries.org I learned a wealth of information about the berries.  First of all they were found first in North America by the native americans so they really are a true American symbol.  I thought I would get some pre thanksgiving practice by making a batch of cranberry sauce.  It was also a personal challenge by George who claims cranberry sauce is one of the most researched recipes.  I went a step further by canning it for shipping.  I stuck with the back of the bag recipe with a little added hint of ginger which I read in a recipe from epicurious.  I must admit it is such an easy recipe, I would definitely make this for a turkey feast just to impress the guests.  

Simply boil a 12oz bag of cranberries with 1C sugar and 2tsp minced ginger.  Continue to cook until the sugar begins to caramelize stirring frequently until the cranberries are slightly broken (not mushy).
