Tips & Tricks for perfecting Homemade Spiced Cranberry Sauce
Fresh cranberries typically are available from October to January at the grocery store
Typically I use organic sugar, but sugar in the raw, brown sugar or regular sugar also work well
You can change the spices based on your favorites. You can substitute the spices listed with cinnamon or nutmeg and cinnamon.
You can also cut up an apple into small bites and add it to the cranberry sauce during the cooking process. Apples add a little something special to this recipe.
If you like you can add orange to the cranberry sauce. I suggest you add cut up orange to the cranberry sauce after it is cooked and cooled
Background of Homemade Spiced Cranberry Sauce
When I was growing up, we only had jellied cranberry that came out of can, that you sliced and then served. It was ok, but nothing special. Once I noticed fresh cranberries at the grocer and I thought why not make my own cranberry sauce. It has become one of my favorite recipes of winter. As soon as I find them available at the grocer, I start making this recipe.
So aside from a typical holiday side dish, cranberry sauce is a perfect addition to some every day food favorites. I like adding cranberry sauce to vanilla yogurt, ice cream, oatmeal, waffles and pancakes. Also, what a great addition to a turkey deli meat sandwich, so yummy!!
So take a chance and make this cranberry sauce. It is a wonderful addition to your favorite meal or breakfast item. Like me you will wish you could purchase fresh cranberries year round!
