Maple syrup, red pepper flakes, and candied orange zest make this holiday classic fun again. This “spread” pairs well with our Cheddar Biscuits.

What to buy: Candied orange peel really makes this dish, so look for it in gourmet grocery stores.

Game plan: This can be stored, covered and refrigerated, up to a week. Serve at room temperature.


  1. 1Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Once mixture has come to a boil, reduce heat to low to maintain a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until thick and reduced, about 40 to 45 minutes. Set aside to cool.
