A Cranberry Staple...Thank you Ina Garten!

Can the canned jiggly stuff. This is the cranberry I crave all year! The Barefoot Contessa's Cranberry Fruit Conserve. Ina may live back East, but the ingredients are sooooo California. (Well...except maybe the cranberries....)

The Barefoot Contessa's Cranberry Fruit Conserve

1 (12-ounce) bag of fresh cranberries, cleaned
1 3/4 cups sugar
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored, and chopped
1 orange, zest grated and juiced
1 lemon, zest grated and juiced
3/4 cup raisins

3/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Cook the cranberries, sugar, and 1 cup of water in a saucepan over low heat for about 5 minutes, or until the skins pop open. Add the apple, zests, and juices and cook for 15 more minutes. Remove from the heat and add the raisins and nuts. Let cool, and serve chilled.

I like Ina a lot. Happy Turkey Day!
