Cranberry relish
Ingredients:

  • 1½ cups granulated sugar
  • ½ cup cranberry juice
  • ½ to ¾ tsp freshly grated ginger
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • cranberries
  • Zest of 1 orange (orange part only)

Method:

  1. Set the EGG for direct cooking without the convEGGtor at 190°C.
  2. In a Cast Iron Skillet, add sugar, juice and spices. Cook, stirring often, until sugar dissolves, syrup is clear and comes to a rolling boil.
  3. In a colander, rinse and pick over the cranberries to remove any mushy ones. Add cranberries to the boiling syrup and continue cooking, uncovered, just until they begin to pop, about 2-5 minutes – be careful not to cook them too long or they will get mushy. Skim the foam off the surface with a metal spoon and discard.
  4. Remove from heat, stir in orange zest and cool to room temperature, uncovered.
  5. Place in container, cover and store in the fridge for up to 3 months.
