    the 3rd and 5th rack:

    cranberries are slightly charred:
Pull out trays with the grill grate handle, stir cranberries, and place trays back into the Beefer infrared grill on opposite racks. Cook another 45 seconds.

  • Place spices, ginger, orange zest, orange juice and maple syrup and one pan of cranberries into a mini food processor or blender. Blend until cranberries are finely minced.
