Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry sauce is something I grew up thinking only came out of a can and it wasn’t very tasty to me. It wasn’t until my mother in law made it fresh with ingredients like oranges, nuts, and spices that I questioned what was really in that can! I have now made a couple of versions, and this is one that I got from a chef in Nashville from The Salted Table. Like most cranberry sauce recipes, his called for a lot of sugar, I am using half the amount of sugar the recipe called for, so if you need more sugar feel free to add more. Enjoy!

1 bag cranberries
3/4 C sugar
1 cinnamon stick
1/2 tsp. ground allspice
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 orange, zested and juiced

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Cool, remove cinnamon stick and serve.
