  • Charski's Cranberry Jalapeno Sauce

  • This is great stuff, last year, I didn't make it and there was almost war at my house.

  • Even If You Do Not Normally Cook With Jalapenos...

  • should try Char's Cranberry Jalapeno Sauce. I was a little afraid of it, but I cut out all the seeds and membrane as Char suggested and the end result was the best cranberry sauce I've ever had. DH was blown away.

  • Here's the recipe and I might even up the jalapeno flavor next time.

  • Char's Cranberry Jalapeno Sauce

  • 1

    pound cranberries, frozen is fine

  • ½

    cup SF syrup (Char recommends orange, raspberry, pineapple or lime)

  • Juice of 1 fresh lime

  • ¼

    cup minced onion

  • ½ to 1

    fresh jalapeno, minced (remove seeds and membrane if you want it milder

  • 1

    tablespoon SF honey or maple syrup or Agave syrup

  • 2

    packets Splenda or NuStevia

  • Combine everything in a 2-quart dish and microwave on high 3 minutes; stir. Microwave another 3 minutes; stir. Then microwave 1-2 minutes until it thickens up a bit. Let cool, then refrigerate overnight to let the flavors develop.

  • A couple of notes: I covered the bowl with plastic wrap and vented it when I microwaved it. And I used a little more sweetener than the recipe called for - just personal preference.

  • Also, I wasn't sure if it was supposed to be served hot or cold, but found that we like it both ways, which is nice. I think I have a slight preference for it hot.

  • I now have frozen cranberries in the freezer for the next time we have turkey, chicken, or ham.
