Cranberry Sauce With Variations

12-ounce bag fresh cranberries

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

3/4 cup orange juice

Pinch of salt

In a medium saucepan over medium-high, combine the cranberries, brown sugar, orange juice and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the cranberries have popped and softened, 8 to 10 minutes.

Remove the saucepan from the heat and select one of the flavor combinations below:

Chipotle: Add 1 minced chipotle chile and 1 tablespoon adobo sauce (from a can of chipotles in adobo). Allow to cool, then stir in 3 tablespoons of chopped fresh cilantro.

Truffled: Allow sauce to fully cool, then stir in 1/2 teaspoon truffle oil and 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh chives.

Sweet and Smoky: Stir in 1/2 cup crumbled, well-cooked bacon, 1 teaspoon smoked paprika and an extra 1/2 cup brown sugar.

Lemon-Tarragon: Stir in 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh tarragon and the zest and juice of 1 lemon.

Ginger-Miso: Stir in 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger and 2 tablespoons sweet white miso.

Makes 8 servings.
