CHIPOTLE ORANGE CRANBERRY SAUCE
- 1 medium orange
- 1 package (12 ounces) fresh or frozen cranberries
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 cinnamon stick (3 inches)
- 1/4 to 3/4 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Finely grate the zest from the orange. Cut the orange in half crosswise and squeeze the juice from it. Place both zest and juice in a small saucepan and stir in all remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil then reduce heat. Simmer for 5-7 minutes, until the berries pop, making sure to stir occasionally. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely before removing the cinnamon stick, covering tightly and storing in refrigerator.
