Process fresh cranberries, jalapeño, and brown sugar in food processor until a thick paste forms.
On a sheet of plastic wrap, spread an even layer of the cranberry mixture to form a square shape that is as long as the length of your goat cheese and wide enough to wrap around the circumference.
Place the goat cheese on the cranberry mixture, then lift the plastic wrap around so that the cranberry mixture bonds tightly to the cheese. Wrap tightly with any excess plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
Serve at room temperature with crackers.
* One small jalapeño gives just enough kick to add some great flavor. If you want it to be more spicy, you'll have to use two small or one large jalapeño.
