Real. 1 bag of cranberries, 1 cup apple juice, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 shot bourbon, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, zest and orange from 1 orange, bring to a boil, reduce and simmer until all the cranberries have popped. Chill and serve.

Pre-processed all the way. Goes well with the canned cranberries that still have the can's mold when pushed out....

I made ours this year with maple syrup. It was good, but too sweet. Back to the drawing board.

1 package cranberries, washed & drained; one orange, cut up, with skin attached. Put through the grinder and add 3/4 cup sugar. mix thoroughly and chill.


So homemade all the way, though we also have on hand the jelly type that comes in a can. Gotta have both. Because they're different.

Open can, dump into serving bowl, nuke, serve. 14 minutes start to finish.

Boil, strain, doctor, taste, ugh! doctor some more, boil off and reduce, taste, ehhh? will anyone eat this? Serve. Elapsed time 3 hours.

What the heck of a contest is this? Canned all the way baby!
