       Title: CRANBERRY-JALAPENO SAUCE
  Categories: Condiments
       Yield: 2 Cups
  
      12 oz Cranberries, fresh or frozen
       1    Orange
       2 tb Tequila
     1/2 c  Sugar
       1 md Jalapeno pepper
  
   Rinse the berries and discard any that are brown and soft. Finely
   grate the zest only of the orange peel, then cut the orange in half
   and squeeze out the juice. Add enough water to the orange juice to
   make one cup of liquid.
   
   Combine the berries, grated orange peel, juice and water, tequila, and
   sugar in a large non-reactive pot, and bring it to a slow boil,
   stirring occasionally as the sugar dissolves. Trim the jalapeno,
   discard the seeds, and chop it finely.
   
   When the berries begin to pop, add the chopped jalapeno and boil
   everything together for about 5 more minutes, stirring with a long
   wooden spoon. If the sauce seems too thick, add a little more water.
   
   Remove the sauce from the heat and allow it to cool, stirring now and
   again to prevent a skin from forming. Spoon it into a pretty dish, and
   chill if you like.
   
   This delicious, slightly spicy sauce is perfect alongside tamales,
   with cheese-stuffed crepes, or any similarly rich-flavored dish, or
   even with your Thanksgiving turkey.
