Tennessee Honey Corn Pudding
4 T cornstarch
1/3 c butter, melted & cooled
½ cup half & half cream
5 large eggs, beaten
3 T Tennessee Honey Whiskey
2 T brown sugar
1 small jalapeno pepper, seeds removed & chopped fine
¼ t ground nutmeg
Dash onion powder
¼ t salt
¼ t ground pepper
2 (15 oz) cans whole kernel yellow corn, drained
2 (14.75 oz) cans cream style white corn
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 9 X 13" baking dish.
Whisk cornstarch into melted butter. Whisk in half & half, eggs, whiskey, and sugar along with the chopped Jalapeno pepper and all remaining spices. Stir in drained yellow corn and creamed white corn. Pour into dish.
Bake uncovered for approx. 1 hour or until center is set and pudding has browned on top.

FRESH CRANBERRY CHUTNEY
4 c fresh cranberries
1 c raisins or dried cranberries
1/2 c white sugar
3/4 c packed brown sugar
2 t ground cinnamon
1 t minced fresh ginger root
1/4 t ground cloves
1 c water
1/2 c finely minced onion
1/2 c chopped Granny Smith apple, peeled and cored
1/2 c finely chopped celery
In a medium saucepan, combine the cranberries, raisins, white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce the heat and simmer over low heat until the berries start to pop, about 5-7 minutes.
Add the onion, apple, and celery; continue to cook, stirring occasionally until the mixture begins to thicken, 5-10 more minutes. Transfer to a container and cool slightly. Refrigerate overnight to allow flavors to meld.
yield: 4 cups of cranberry sauce
While I have only made the recipe as is, I have a feeling it is really adaptable. If you want less savory ingredients, try omitting the onion and celery (but I'd leave the apple and maybe add a tad of orange zest).
