this post my heart was set on making my own cranberry sauce and forgoing the canned stuff. I'm so glad I made this choice. I don't know why but I had this misconception that making cranberry sauce would be difficult...WRONG! It was super easy and made my kitchen smell AMAZING!!! Cranberries, orange, nutmeg, allspice, and cinnamon. I need a candle that smelled like this sauce because it was intoxicating and I really enjoyed this dish.

4 cups (12 oz) fresh cranberries
1 cup orange juice, freshly squeezed
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
zest of 1 orange
In a large saucepan, stir cranberries, orange juice, and sugar together.
Bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat.
Turn heat down and let simmer until cranberries burst and sauce thickens, 10-12 minutes.
Sauce will continue to thicken while cooling.
Stir in cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and orange zest.
