Medaâ€™s Spiced Cranberry Appetizer
1 (12 oz) bag of fresh cranberries 1 1/2 cups sugar 4 1/2 tsp. vinegar 2 1/2 tsp. cinnamon 1/2 tsp. ground cloves 1/2 tsp. allspice
Wash the cranberries but donâ€™t dry them. Add all of the ingredients to a saucepan and cook over medium heat until the sugar dissolves and the cranberry skins pop, stirring regularly. (This usually takes about 20-30 minutes.) Let cool until just warm, and then pour over a brick of cream cheese. Serve with Wheat Thins or your favorite crackers.
Note: One batch is enough for two regular sized bricks of cream cheese. You can also make this ahead, store covered in the refrigerator, and warm slightly before serving.
