Gingered Cranberry Orange Relish

Every year for Thanksgiving, I make this cranberry sauce/relish instead of getting that jelled stuff from the grocery store. I started making it about 8 years ago when my parents visited during Thanksgiving. My dad ADORES cranberry sauce and wanted to make something special for him.

1 bag fresh cranberries
1-cup sugar
½ cup orange juice
2 tbsp ginger
1 can mandarin oranges drained
1/4 cup of chopped walnuts
Shot of Brandy

Combine all ingredients above. Bring to boiling over medium-high heat. Boil uncovered for at least 5 minutes. Make sure mixture has thickened before removing from heat. Chill before serving.
