- 1 pound fresh or frozen cranberries

- ½ cup golden raisins
- 1 jalapeno pepper seeded and chopped

Place the cranberries and water in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium high heat. Simmer for about five minutes until the berries begin to pop.
Add the apples, orange and zest, raisins, jalapeno and sugar. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat, cover, and simmer on medium low for about 30 minutes.
Remove the pan from the heat and allow the mixture to cool. Transfer the mixture to a blender and blend to desired consistency – you can leave it slight chunky or pureed it until it is the consistency of jam.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the brie on a foil lined cookie sheet or in a cheese baker. Bake the brie for 12-14 minutes. Allow it to cool for about five minutes.
Drizzle the cranberry sauce over the brie. Sprinkle with chopped pecans.
Serve with toasted bread or crackers.
