Florida cranberry sauce

Raw Florida cranberry (also called Jamaican sorrel)
 The FOX 13 Good Day garden is growing Florida cranberries right now. Its leaves and calyces are edible and are used in a variety of dishes.This Thanksgiving, I was tasked with preparing a "cranberry sauce" with these plants (which taste remarkably similar to the cranberry--fresh, tart). In honor of the "Florida" theme, I decided to incorporate some ingredients local to the Tampa area.
Florida cranberry sauce
The following recipe yields 1 CUP of sauce, so adjust measurements as necessary!

-2 cups Florida orange juice
-2 cups of Florida cranberry calyces, chopped (Remove and discard seed pods, chop calyces--the red part. I found that about a dozen "berries" yield about a cup when chopped.)
-7 tbsp. Florida honey
-1/4 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg
-1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
-1/4 tsp. cloves
-1/4 tsp. cardamom

  1. In a pot, on high heat, bring orange juice to a boil.
  2. Add spices, honey, and Florida cranberries. Be sure the seed pods are removed and the calyces are chopped.
  3. Once mixture is boiling, reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook until sauce is thick (about 15 minutes), stirring frequently.
  4. Transfer to serving dish and chill in the fridge.
