Holiday Cranberry Sauce





Thank you to Kari Thevenot for submitting this recipe from This recipe is a fresh take on traditional cranberry sauce, with using fresh cranberries instead of the canned variety.


  • 4 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 5 whole cloves
  • 5 whole allspice berries
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 cups white sugar (can also use Splenda instead of sugar)

Place fresh cranberries and water in a medium saucepan over medium heat.

Wrap cloves, allspice berries and cinnamon sticks in spice bag. Place in the water with cranberries. Cook until cranberries begin to burst, about 10 minutes.

Stir in sugar and reduce heat to low. Continue cooking 5 minutes or until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Discard spice bag. Chill in the refrigerator for 8 hours, or overnight, before serving.
