  1. In a saucepan, stir together the apple cider, white sugar, brown sugar, allspice, cloves, nutmeg and cranberries. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 15 minutes, until most of the cranberries have popped. Continue cooking until the consistency is thick.
  2. Ladle into sterile jars to within 1/2 inch of the rim, seal with lids and rings. Process in a simmering water bath for 10 to 15 minutes to seal, or just transfer to containers, cool, and refrigerate. It will last at least a week if it can escape being gobbled up!

Very good flavor, and about as easy to make as a box of macaroni and cheese! I cut the recipe in, since I didn't really need enough to last until Spring...just enough to last until Thanksgiving...

Took this to dinner party, and the girls really liked it. I just cut down a little on the cloves and allspice. Delicious on turkey sandwiches. A keeper.

Amazing! I've never, ever, enjoyed cranberry sauce with my turkey, but now I don't think I want to eat turkey without it! I was a little concerned about the amount of allspice, but went with i...

I have made this for the second time, and it keeps getting better. I only had apple juice on hand this time, which sufficed fine. I really suggest using all seasonings to taste. For me, the reci...
