Just like with everything else – you could add cranberry sauce to your shopping list, go to your local supermarket, pick one up, open the can and serve it. Or – you can make this easy, delicious cranberry relish and treat your family and guests to a totally different taste. That little different taste comes from what you add to fresh cranberries: jalapeno peppers will give your relish a nice kick that will get toned down by the addition of maple syrup. Try this recipe – I think you will never buy another can of pre-made cranberry sauce again!
