Cranberry sauce


by: momma

I just can't imagine having turkey without cranberries, can you?? I have a hard time believing there was a time when I just picked up a couple cans of cranberries and that was it!! Mind you, cranberries in any form are GREAT!!!! But cooking the berries and adding all sorts of nummy spices sure does add to the fantastic flavor of the cranberries!!! This cranberry sauce is so easy and quick, it's hard to believe I've only been cooking them this way the past couple years!!!! The ONLY downside is that this year, the price of the raw berries has skyrocketed but I splurged on them anyway. I totally missed a really good sale on them - couldn't get to that store in time....oh well, hopefully next time.... Hope you enjoy these as much as we do!! Prep time: 10mins. Cook time: 15 mins. Total time: 25 mins. Serves 6 Total cost: $3.00 Cost per serving: $0.50

1.  Sort through the berries, picking out any stems or soft berries. I usually rinse them in a bowl of water, scooping out handfuls, checking and sorting into another bowl. Any that sink are definitely not good. They should be solid and almost like little "balls" clunking against each other.

2.  In a medium pot/saucepan, stir together the cranberries, juice and sugar. Add the orange zest and ginger (if using).

3.  Bring to a low boil, stir well and simmer until all the berries have cooked until they've "popped". (That's how you can tell they're done.) ;-)

4.  Remove from heat and stir in the cinnamon, allspice and cloves.

5.  Serve warm or cold.
