(4 Bags) Fresh Cranberries
(3/4 cup) of Sugar for every bag of Cranberries
(2 small cans) of Mandarin Oranges
(1 each) of an Orange and Lemon (for Zest)
(1 Bag) Pecans or Walnuts (optional)
Rinse cranberries in a colander throwing out any mushy ones. Put the cranberries in a large pot with cold water, a 1/2" below the top of the Cranberry line. Bring to a boil, then turn down heat to a simmer stirring occasionally (you'll hear them popping). After about 10 minutes add the sugar and stir to dissolve. Simmer on low for about another 20 minutes as fruit mixture thickens, then let it cool. Add the canned Mandarin Oranges minus the juices. Meanwhile, toast the nuts (use less or none at all) in the oven to bring out the flavor (being careful not to burn them), let cool. When cranberries are still warm, grate the lemon and orange skin (called zest) into the mixture, using the finest part of the grater. Use most of each fruit, or to taste. When nuts are cooled, stir into fruit. Chill and serve. * Note: taste the cranberries while cooking and if it's not sweet enough you can add another 1/4 cup per bag, but don't over do it, the beauty of this recipe is the sweet tart fresh flavor (the Zest makes it!). You can refrigerate this for a few weeks or freeze some if it lasts that long. Serve it with pork, lamb, for dessert with cheese cake, over ice cream or just by itself!
