I made cranberry sauce for the first time last year and I loved it so much I had to make it again this year. This recipe comes straight from Our Best Bites and even though it was very sweet it was a hit with me. The rest of the family is still into the canned variety which will also do in a pinch.
Cranberry Sauce (Recipe slightly adapted from Our Best Bites)
1 bag cranberries
1/2 c. white sugar
1 c. orange juice
1 c. water
1 stick cinnamon
1 very small pinch ground cloves
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Wash cranberries and place in 9×13 baking dish. Add water, cloves, cinnamon stick, and orange juice and sprinkle with sugar. Bake 1 hour. Remove from oven, remove cinnamon stick, and allow to cool. If you like it with a little texture, mash berries; if you prefer it smooth, process in blender or food processor until desired consistency is reached.
** Once I saw this idea on Pinterest I knew I had to make this arrangement for our Thanksgiving table. **
