2 pounds cranberries
1 cup water
2 cups apple cider vinegar
6 seedless navel oranges (zest removed and reserved, white pith removed and discarded, pulp of each orange coarsely chopped)
2 cups white sugar
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup honey
1 tablespoon each of red pepper flakes, cinnamon, allspice, ginger, mace, salt
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 pound of raisins
Combine cranberries, water and vinegar in a large stainless saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil for 6 minutes or until the cranberries pop. While they are cooking, measure the remaining ingredients and place it all in a bowl. After the cranberries have burst, add the remaining ingredients and simmer until the consistency is jam-like, about 30 to 40 minutes. Stir frequently to prevent scorching. This makes a wonderful accompaniment to turkey.
