Alton Brown's Cranberry Dipping Sauce

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Lvs2Cook

We make two turkeys at Thanksgiving -- smoked and roasted -- and this sauce is excellent with either turkey. It's tangy and full of flavor. It's easy to make to boot! 11/11 I just noticed that part of this recipe is missing so I am fixing now :)

Made some changes to the recipe, used fresh cranberries, gingerbeer ( non-alcohol), and 2 cups of light Brown sugar (could not read my handwriting). Sometimes mistakes work wonderful, especially for those who has a sweet tooth. Next year will boil fresh ginger to give some depth.
