If you don't care for the tart tang of cranberries - try this. My dear friend, Gail, serves this dish her way frequently and everyone likes it because it is sweet & spicy and just tangy enough. A great condiment. I've modified Gail's recipe a tad and share it with you. Cranberries will no longer be a Thanksgiving side dish. This is wonderful with baked ham, as I use it, or any fowl or game dish.

Most of the ingredients are available at the average grocery. Living a the rural area, you may be fortunate to find the extra dark brown sugar and turbinado I use, which deepens the down South country notes I seek in the dish. Gail says she sometimes adds a touch of orange zest, too.

Cost per recipe $2.46 view details
  • 1 C water
  • 1 12-oz package of cranberries (I keep packages in the freezer and this recipe is just fine starting with frozen berries)
  • 1/2 C turbinado (or granulated) sugar
  • 1/2 C the darkest brown sugar you can get
  • 3 Tbs best quality fresh horseradish
  • 1 Tbs Dijon mustard (for a small family / friends dinner, I substitute a 1/4 C of Emeril's Kicked Up Horseradish Mustard , which has red pepper in it)


  1. Make a simple syrup thoroughly dissolving of the sugars in water
  2. Add the cranberries to the lightly boiling syrup and return to a light boil
  3. Cook until most berries have popped the the product thickens, about 10 minutes
  4. COOL the now cranberry sauce to room temperature
  5. Stir in the horseradish & mustard
  6. Jar it up & refrigerate until ready to use
  7. This will keep for about 2 weeks at 37 ^

    Great recipe, Chef Amos. My mom LOVES cranberries. I'm going to make some and take to her in the nursing home with her ham. Thank You!
