  2. Step 2 – Cook Cranberries and Dissolve Sugar!
    1. Bring water, cinnamon, cloves, salt, sugar and cranberries to boil over medium heat.
    2. Stir frequently for about 10 minutes, until cranberries “start to pop.”
  3. Step 3 – Add Fruit and Cook Until Thick
    1. Once cranberries begin to pop, reduce heat so mixture simmers.

    3. Remove from heat. Stir in hazelnuts and crystallized ginger.
    4. Cool to room temp – remove cinnamon sticks and cloves.
