  • Portion size 1 serving



In 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 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.

Test Kitchen Tip: 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.
