My husband cringed when I told him I wanted to make cranberry sauce for this upcoming Thanksgiving because he has HORRIBLE memories of cranberry sauce, past & present!
OMG!!! This cranberry sauce is so tasty, delicious, tangy and easy to make! I rarely follow any cooking recipe to a "tee," so I did improvise a bit.
I decreased the sugar to 1 cup and instead of bundling spices, I used a few pinches of nutmeg, a few pinches of cinnammon and an exotic mixture of dried allspice (with ginger, anise, clove, cinammon & nutmeg). I went VERY EASY (a spinkle or two) with this exotic allspice 'cause I didn't want the sauce to become too bitter. Also, the cranberries, sugar & water DO need to cook for approxiamtely 20 minutes to get a true sauce consistency.
But ohhhhh so good! I cannot believe how tasty this recipe turned out, with a deep red color...so pretty, too! Cannot wait to serve this cranberry sauce to my family for Thanksgiving! Thank you!
