Classic Cranberry Sauce

Due to some wonderful timing and the fact that my mother in law is cooking a huge turkey (that I doubt she wants to lug all the way to our place) for Thanksgiving dinner, I'm not going to be hosting Thanksgiving this year (but I have been tagged for Christmas dinner). I will still be making a few side dishes and desserts but other than that, I get to relax and eat cranberry sauce to my hearts content this Thanksgiving! Here is my favorite cranberry sauce recipe. Enjoy!

Classic Cranberry Sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • Dash of ground cloves
  • 1 (12-ounce)package fresh cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange rind
Combine first 6 ingredients in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium; cook 12 minutes or until cranberries pop. Remove from heat; stir in rind. Cool completely. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
