Gingered Cranberry Orange Relish

This is another one of my Thanksgiving traditions. I do not like the canned cranberry sauce. I prefer to make things from scratch if at all possible so one year, coincidentally it was the same year I started making the cherry crumbled pie, I decided to make homemade cranberry sauce. This recipe is simple and very tasty.

1 bag fresh cranberries
1 cup sugar
½ cup orange juice
2 tbsp ginger
1 can mandarin oranges drained
Shot of Brandy

Combine all ingredients above. Bring to boiling over medium-high heat. Boil uncovered for at least 5 minutes. Make sure mixture has thickened before removing from heat. Chill before serving.
