One of my earliest memories of Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners was the cranberry sauce. You mean I got to eat JAM with my regular food? :-D I was all in! As I started learning to cook, I experimented with different variations. This is by far my favorite version! Enjoy!
Spiced Cran-Cherry Sauce...
12 ounces fresh cranberries (I used organic)
8-10 ounces frozen cherries
a little water
Cook until the cranberries have broken down and it is saucy.
1 cup organic light brown cane sugar (or more to taste) OR coconut sugar
1 tsp grated organic orange rind (and the juice from the orange)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 tsp cinnamon (add more to taste if desired)
And then a couple dashes of nutmeg, ground cloves, and ginger. Stir well and refrigerate!
Eat to your hearts content. ;-)
