Orange Spiced Cranberry Sauce 





Here is my favourite recipe for Cranberry Sauce. It's quick and easy but definitely adds something extra special to a turkey dinner! I like to make the cranberry sauce the night before or early in the day (then refrigerate) so that I have one less thing to think about and clean up when I'm making the actual meal.

1 - 12 ounce bag Cranberries

1 Cup Water

1 cup Sugar (I usually use less, about 2/3 cup)

1 tablespoon Orange Zest

1 Cinnamon stick or 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg

Combine sugar and water in a medium saucepan (I always like to use one size up from what I need so it won't splash over). Bring to a boil until sugar dissolves. Add cranberries, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Cook over medium heat and simmer until the sauce thickens and the cranberries burst (approximately 15 to 20 minutes). Remove cinnamon stick. Let cool to room temperature or refrigerate before serving. 


Enjoy! 

I wish you love, great sex and happiness always,
MJ
