Holiday Cranberry Sauce

Happy Thanksgiving!  We had a nice Thanksgiving dinner with our little fam, and plenty of food.  This Cranberry Sauce is good and easy.  This is the second time I've made it.  I halve the recipe, and reduce the sugar a little.

For Thanksgiving 2010, we enjoyed Roasted Turkey and Gravy, Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes, Slow Cooker Stuffing, corn, cool green cauliflower Romanesco, corn, this yummy Holiday Cranberry Sauce, and our favorite rolls.  Dessert was key lime pie (made with lemons this time because we get fresh ones from our friend), and Maple Pecan Pie.  Love Maple Pecan Pie!!!!

Holiday Cranberry Sauce

4 cups fresh cranberries
1 1/2 cups water
5 whole cloves
5 whole allspice berries
3 cinnamon sticks
2 cups white sugar

1.Place fresh cranberries and water in a medium saucepan over medium heat.

2.Wrap cloves, allspice berries and cinnamon sticks in a spice bag. Place in the water with cranberries.

3.Cook until cranberries begin to burst, about 10 minutes.

4.Stir in sugar and reduce heat to low. Continue cooking 5 minutes, or until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Discard spice bag. Chill in the refrigerator 8 hours, or overnight, before serving.
