THANKSGIVING: Cranberry Bourbon Relish

Thank God, I'm a Kentucky girl--and thank, God, He made bourbon! Just in time for Thanksgiving dinner planning, here is a heavenly recipe for Cranberry Bourbon Relish from Sweet Lorraine's restaurant in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

1 c bourbon
1/4 c. minced shallot
zest of 1 small orange
1 12 oz bag fresh cranberries
1 c sugar
1/2 t fresh grated ginger
1 t ground black pepper

Rinse and pick over cranberries; drain. Combine bourbon, shallots, ginger and orange zest in a non-reactive saucepan (not aluminum) . Bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer til it reduces to a syrupy glaze. Add cranberries and sugar, raise heat and bring to a boil stirring to combine. Lower heat and cook til cranberries start to burst. Remove from heat and add pepper. Cool and refrigerate til needed.
(serves 4-5)
