 I Can’t Quit You

Tailgating made simple. A handful of seasonal cranberries brighten a humble bottle of barbecue sauce beautifully. Look to Crimson Cranberry ‘Cue Sauce to perk up barbecue ribs, pulled pork specialties & smoked chicken flawlessly. Try it alongside Bourbon-Bacon Pork Tenderloin or pick up fried chicken fingers if you’re truly short on time for a tasty dipping sauce option. Turn up the heat by simply tossing additional minced jalapeños into the mixture. Football fanatics will go wild for this exciting blend of flavors guaranteed to score big on game day.

Game Changer

Fresh seasonal cranberries brighten this sweet, pungent condiment made with commercial barbecue sauce. Expect a thick sauce with bold flavor that can be used on a variety of grilled main dish selections. 

1 cup fresh cranberries
1 cup apple juice
3 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp minced jalapeño 
1 cup barbecue sauce

Bring the first 5 ingredients to a boil in a 2-quart saucepan with tall sides over Medium heat. Cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened. Do not step away as the bubbles will rise up the pan sides as it cooks. Turn down the heat & stir the mixture, if necessary. Stir in the barbecue sauce & bring to a simmer over Medium-Low heat. Cook 2 minutes or until heated through. Use as directed.

The Extra Point

For a twist, omit the cranberries & substitute 1 cup diced Granny Smith apple to prepare a tasty new sauce variation.

How To Zest Fresh Citrus

A little lemon zest is a wonderful way to add fresh notes to sauces.
Pep up a variety of your favorite foods with this easy technique.

The Technique

Hold the microplane grater over a cutting board, allowing the tip to rest over the surface at an angle. Swipe just the outer portion of the citrus over the tool towards the board. Turn the fruit after each swipe. You only want to collect zest with color & not the white, bitter pith just underneath the surface. Repeat the process until you have collected the amount you’d like to add to the recipe.
