Spicy Blackberry Cranberry Sauce recipe

Spicy Blackberry Cranberry Sauce

Chef Adriana Martin
Cranberry sauce is a tradition in my holiday table and every year I come up with different combinations to offer an alternative to the traditional, so this year I created a Spicy Blackberry Cranberry Sauce with lemon peel, chile de árbol and a touch of sriracha. The combination is perfect balance between sweet, spicy and tart and the blackberries add an additional texture that is very pleasant to the taste.
