Cranberry Sauce

I make this every year and cran fans always go wild for the cinnamon and orange bursts of flavor in this homemade version of the canned classic.


· 1-pound fresh cranberries, washed and dried

· 2 cups granulated sugar

· 1/3 cup water

· 1 cinnamon stick

· 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice

· 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

· 1 orange, zested and juiced


In a medium pot, combine the cranberries, sugar, and water. Stir to blend. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat. Reduce to a simmer and add the cinnamon stick, allspice, and nutmeg. Stir to blend and simmer for an additional 5 to 7 minutes. Some of the cranberries will burst and some will remain whole. Add the orange juice and zest, stir, and allow to cool before serving.
