Even though I live in France, I still have an American fondness for cranberries with poultry. This recipe takes under ten minutes and will keep in the refrigerator in a tightly sealed jar for over a week. In keeping with the overall theme, many people add chopped walnuts or pecans. And yes, loathe as I am to admit, the recipe comes from my mother.
12 oz. fresh cranberries
2 oranges, quartered
1/4 c. sugar
optional: Cointreau or Grand Marnier
In food processor with steel blade, combine half the cranberries along with one of the oranges and 1/4 c. sugar, and process until smooth.
Pour into bowl, and repeat processing with remaining cranberries and orange.
Adjust sugar according to taste, adding optional liqueur.
