Success! cranberry joy!

OK, for a completely improv recipe, this worked really well.

300g cranberries
50g soft dark brown sugar
250ml orange juice
50ml port
50ml balsamic vinegar
5ml Angostura bitters
1 small red chili, de-seeded
2cm ginger root, peeled and chopped
2cm cinnamon stick, crushed
10 cloves, crushed
5 juniper berries, crushed
good pinch of salt

Bring the liquids to a simmer. Add the spices, and allow to infuse for 30 minutes. Discard spices. Add cranberries, sugar and salt, and simmer until cranberries have ruptured. Bottle.

You may want more or less sugar, depending on how sweet you like things. I prefer my stuff less sweet, so 50g is kind of sharp.
