This cranberry sauce is easy to make and a perfect accompaniment to a rich winter dinner. The cinnamon and cloves give this sauce the perfect holiday flavor, while the fresh cranberries are tart enough to complement your heavy festive food. We love to add a splash of Cointreau or Brandy while the cranberries cook, to give the sauce some ‘oomph!’ Enjoy!
1 12oz bag of fresh cranberries
1 cup orange juice
½ cup sugar
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp ground cloves
- Add all of the ingredients to a medium non-stick saucepan over medium-high heat.
- When the ingredients start to steam and come to a simmer, reduce the heat to medium.
- Let simmer for 10-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the cranberries give out their juices and the sauce becomes rich.
- Add a little more sugar to taste, if necessary.
