Did you catch me over the weekend on Saturday? I was on FOX 6 Wake Up showing off my Homemade Cranberry Relish and delicious Cranberry Jam Margaritas! Below are the recipes for the holiday!  Happy Thanksgiving everyone! xo, KK

Cranberry Relish

  • 1 package of cranberries
  • 3/4 cup - freshly squeezed orange juice (2 oranges)
  • 2 oranges (grate their zest, us a Microplanner)
  • 1 teaspoon - ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon - ground cloves
  • 1/2 cup- Agave Nectar Syrup (you can use sugar here too)

Combine the cranberries, orange zest and juice, Syrup, cinnamon, and cloves in a small saucepan, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the cranberries are tender and the sauce has thickened, about 10 minutes.

Taste, and add more syrup if desired. Set aside to cool. Serve at room temperature. (The sauce can be made up to 3 days in advance and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to serve.)

Cranberry Margaritas

  • 1/2 cup Cranberry Relish
  • 1 lime, squeezed
  • 3/4 cup Sliver Tequila
  • 1/4 cup Triple Sec
  • 1/4 cup Orange Juice
  • 4 Cups of Ice

Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.  

  • 2 limes – Cut 1 lime into quarters and the other lime into a wheel (for garish)
  • ¼ cups sugar (place this on a small plate)

While blending, cut a lime and rub it on the rim of the glass and then dip the glass on a plate sugar
