This delicious condiment is perfect to accompany the noble Thanksgiving bird in his tasty way.
1 large seedless orange, including the peel
1, 12-ounce package fresh cranberries
1 ½ cups of sugar
1 cup of orange juice
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger root
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Peel the orange and reserve half of the peel. Dice the orange. Chop half of the peel very finely. Put all ingredients into a heavy sauce pan with a heavy lid. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to maintain a rapid simmer and cover. Continue to cook for about fifteen minutes. Remove the lid and continue cooking until much of the liquid has evaporated and a jam like consistency is achieved.
