Cranberry Bourbon Relish

2 C. bourbon
1/2 C. minced shallot
zest of 1 large orange
2 (12 oz.) bags fresh cranberries
2 C. sugar
1 t. fresh grated ginger
2 t. ground black pepper

Combine in a non-reactive saucepan (not aluminum) the bourbon, shallots, ginger and orange zest. Bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer until it reduces to a syrupy glaze (about 10 minutes). Add cranberries and sugar, raise heat and bring to a boil stirring to combine. Lower heat and cook until cranberries start to burst. Remove from heat and add pepper. Cool and refrigerate until needed.
Serves 8 -10
