These tart, lightly spiced berries are a vibrant addition to cheese platters, and a spoonful can also be used as a stand-in for cranberry sauce. A little goes a long way, so consider packing them in two smaller jars and tucking them into gift baskets with crackers and cheese.

MethodIn saucepan, bring sugar, vinegar, ginger, cloves, salt and peppercorns to boil; cook, stirring, until sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes.
Stir in cranberries and orange zest; bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium; cook until cranberries are just beginning to burst, 5 to 7 minutes. Let cool completely, about 2 hours. Strain mixture over bowl, reserving solids and liquid.
Transfer cranberry solids to sterilized 2-cup (500 mL) jar with tight-fitting lid; top with enough reserved liquid to cover, discarding any excess. Seal tightly. Refrigerate for at least 24 hours. Store in refrigerator for up to 2 months.
