Alton Brown's Cranberry Dipping Sauce

"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.

    We really enjoyed this sauce; we love strong ginger flavor so added a small pinch of powdered ginger and decided not to blend. The sauce provided a wonderful, full flavor that complimented our turkey quite nicely, and would accompany ham beautifully as well. It has strong orange and ginger flavor (especially with the extra pinch), but also reminds of a traditional orange-cranberry-sugar relish. Very nice.

    Made this for Thanksgiving and it was the only thing people did not touch. I like cranberry sauce, but this was a little much. You really need to love cranberries to love this. However, I did have to use fresh cranberries since my grocery store did not have frozen.

    Even my cranberry-hating relatives enjoy this and the kids in the family LOVE it! It's easy to make - I've even used diet ginger ale and sugar-free maple-flavored syrup and it was still good. Oh, and preparing it makes the house smell wonderful for hours!

    Everything Alton makes is great, including this cranberry sauce! It took a little while (closer to 45-50 minutes) to reduce the sauce down, but it was worth it. Definitely not too sweet - which was perfect! Went great with our thanksgiving ham (recipe #45896).
