Cranberry Sauce with Lime and Ginger
The perfect accompaniment to the holiday bird, this maple-syrup-sweetened sauce cooks in less than 15 minutes and can be made several days before the feast.

1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 1/2 tsp finely shredded lime peel
2 Tbs lime juice
1 12-ounce package cranberries (3 cups)
1 tsp minced fresh ginger

  1. Stir together water, sugar, maple syrup, lime peel, and lime juice in a heavy, medium saucepan. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 3 minutes or until sugar has dissolved.

  2. Add cranberries and continue to simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in ginger. Simmer, uncovered, 6 minutes more or until berries have popped and mixture starts to thicken, stirring occasionally.

  3. Remove from heat and let cool. Makes about 2-1/3 cups (fourteen 2-tablespoon servings).
