3 cups cranberries; (12-oz pkg) fresh or frozen
1 medium Onion; minced
1/3 cup Cider vinegar
1 cup Golden raisins
1 cup Sugar
1 1/2 cups Port
1/2 teaspoon Ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon Ground ginger
1 teaspoon Ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon Cayenne pepper

Original recipe makes 1



Combine all ingredients except cranberries in heavy saucepan. Bring to boil then simmer for 15 minutes. Add cranberries and simmer another 20-30 minutes. Towards the end the relish gets very thick. Make sure you stir it often, since it will stick to the pan.

The Cayanne Pepper adds a whimsical spike just as you swallow! Very popular! I liked this best with at least a days refrigeration before serving.

I prepared this at a dinner for 205. It got raves for the Cayanne touch and numerous people commented that they didn't even like cranberries. It was served as a relish to accompany the chicken with Sherry sauce served on Orzo with brown butter and parsley.
