Prep time: 30 minutes
- 12 oz. cranberries, fresh or frozen
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- Grated rind of one orange
- Juice of one orange, plus water to measure 1 1/2 cups
- 1/4 teaspoons black pepper, freshly ground
- One stick cinnamon
- 7 whole cloves
- 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1. Bring all ingredients except for maple syrup to a boil in a small saucepan. Lower heat to simmer and cook 10 minutes.
2. Reserve 3 tablespoons of cooked, whole cranberries. Strain the remaining mixture over a bowl, using a fine mesh strainer, pushing contents through the mesh with a rubber spatula until only a dry, sticky pulp remains. It should render about 2 1/4 cups syrup.
3. To this add: 1/2 cup pure maple syrup and the reserved whole cooked cranberries.
4. Serve warm with pumpkin griddle cakes
or other pancakes.
