  • 1/8 tsp. ground cloves

  • 1 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 apple (peeled and diced)

Preheat your Grilla to 375 degrees. We suggest using apple pellets for this fruit flavored cook. Pour cranberries into pan and add ginger, apple juice/cider, honey whiskey, fruit juice, ground cloves, cinnamon, orange zest, orange, maple syrup, diced apple, sugar, and brown sugar. Place it in the Grilla for about a hour. When it is finished cooking, remove ginger pieces and, if you want, squeeze out the orange into the sauce.
