Cranberry Sauce for the Holidays

Here is a great home-style recipe for holiday cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and can be used for any season. Once you try cranberry sauce made this way you will never go back to store bought or canned again. This recipe is fairly easy to do and is extraordinarily tasty. The fresh ingredients are all natural and beneficial bursting with flavor and color.


3 cups fresh cranberries

1 ½ cups of water

1 cup of orange juice

2 cups white sugar

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 tablespoon Amaretto liqueur, (Optional: Brandy)

5 whole cloves (Optional: Clove powder)

½ teaspoon cinnamon, (Optional: 3 cinnamon sticks)

½ teaspoon ginger


In a medium pan over medium heat combined water, orange juice, sugar and lemon juice. Add fresh cranberries, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves. (Note: If using whole cloves and cinnamon sticks wrap them in a spice bag. Place in the water with cranberries.) Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes or until cranberries have popped. Remove from heat, stir in the liquor, and allow cooling as cranberry sauce thickens. Chill in refrigerator for 8 hours, or overnight, before serving.
