Friday Recipe Files: Cranberries with Jezebel Sauce

RecipeIf you don’t care for the tart tang of cranberries — try this recipe. It’s sweet & spicy with just enough tartness without overpowering your taste buds. A great condiment for cheese, meat, fish. Cranberries no longer need to remain a Thanksgiving side dish! 

Prep time:
Cook time:


  • 1 C water
  • 1 12-oz package of cranberries (I keep packages in the freezer and this recipe is just fine starting with frozen berries)
  • 1/2 C turbinado (or granulated) sugar (or substitute as you wish)
  • 1/2 C the darkest brown sugar you can get
  • 3 Tbs best quality fresh horseradish
  • 1 Tbs Dijon mustard (for a small family / friends dinner, I substitute a 1/4 C of Emeril’s Kicked Up Horseradish Mustard , which has red pepper in it)


  1. Make a simple syrup thoroughly dissolving of the sugars in water
  2. Add the cranberries to the lightly boiling syrup and return to a light boil
  3. Cook until most berries have popped the the product thickens, about 10 minutes
  4. COOL the now cranberry sauce to room temperature
  5. Stir in the horseradish & mustard
  6. Jar it up & refrigerate until ready to use
  7. This will keep for about 2 weeks at 37 ^
