Basic Cranberry Sauce

I haven't in the past even given the cranberry sauce at the Thanksgiving buffet table a passing glance. This year however for Thanksgiving I wanted to have some on our menu as it is a favorite of my MIL. I found this recipe here and tried it out. It was so good and will now be a staple to our Thanksgiving dinner!

  • 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar $
  • 1/2 cup fresh orange juice (about 2 oranges) $
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 (12-ounce) package fresh cranberries
  • 1 (3-inch) cinnamon stick


  • Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 12 minutes or until mixture is slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. Discard cinnamon stick; cool completely.

Make up to two days ahead and refrigerate.
