"This is my absolute favorite cranberry sauce. The apple cider and hint of orange combined with the warm spices just makes it special."

I'm the submitter of this recipe and I want it to be perfect, so please know that the simmer times need to be increased. When simmering the cider and spices, up the time to nearly an hour at a very low simmer, to reduce the cider somewhat. After adding the cranberries, simmer until nice and thick.
The taste was really good but it was too soupy even after adding gelatin to it. Next time I will use less apple cider, cut it down by 1/3.
This "Apple Cider Cranberry Sauce" recipe is so nice. It is perfectly sweet for my taste. I also love the harmonious blend of components. Each one adds a special dimension to the recipe, reminding me of the old adage, "the whole is greater than the sum of the parts." Thank you for sharing this recipe!
I let this simmer on low for a good hour or so. It was thick and flavorful...perfect!
WARNING! This sauce is highly addictive. I have never liked cranberry sauce out of the can and just don't see what purpose it serves. Not wanting buy canned cranberry sauce I though I'd give this a trial run before thanksgiving. I'm so glad I did. This is definitely a keeper. When I was making this my wife came from a back room in the house and wanted to know what smelled so good. It does take ever bit of an hour to thicken up on a simmer but who cares, your home will smell happy, happy. Thank you mimosa.
Am I simmering just the cider and spice for an hour and then adding cranberries? I didnt have cinnamon sticks and not a fan of clove so I put in some ground cinnamon, clementine zest and grated ginger.
