Cranberry Sauce with Lime and Ginger

Our traditional cranberry sauce recipe reads like this:

1 cup water
2 cups sugar
3 cups cranberries

Bring to a boil. Simmer 20 minutes or until all berries have popped. Add cinnamon to taste.

I found a new one this year.

Cranberry Sauce with Lime and Ginger

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup pure maple syrup or maple flavored syrup (we'll go for the real thing)
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 teaspoons finely shredded lime peel
2 Tablespoons lime juice
1 12 oz. bag fresh or frozen cranberries
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger

In a medium heavy saucepan, stir together sugar, maple syrup, water, lime peel, and lime juice. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, about 3 minutes or until sugar is dissolved.

Stir in cranberries. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in ginger. Simmer, uncovered, about 6 minutes more or until berries have popped and mixture starts to thicken, stirring occasionally. Cool.
