Saucy and Spicy

Hope everyone’s Thanksgiving was gluttonous and glorious! Ours came together wonderfully, thanks to team work and some tried and true favorites (I’ll post more pics later this weekend—or maybe I’ll save them for next year). But the surprise hit of the evening was this Roasted Cranberry Sauce, which our friend Vincent brought. I’ve mentioned that we’ve never quite hit on one we loved. Until now. Even my dad—whom I have never seen eat cranberry—asked for seconds. Vincent says it’s quite beautiful to watch roasting, as the cranberries start to bubble and burst in the oven. The juicy berries then get tossed with orange juice and port. Mmm. The spices were inspired, as was the zesty orange peel and subtle heat from a hit of jalapeño. I’m tempted to make another batch to see us through turkey sandwiches for the weekend. Thank you, Vincent!
