Cranberry Sauce

A few years ago we were left with the task at Thanksgiving of bringing the cranberries. Well Shane didn't want to just get cranberries and dump them out of a can, so he went on a hunt for a good cranberry sauce recipe. And let me tell you he found the best one! This is requested as a must every year. It's super good. I recommend that everyone try it at least once!

Cranberry Sauce

  • 5 (3in) Cinnamon sticks
  • 8 whole allspice berries
  • 8 whole cloves
  • 6 cups fresh cranberries (2 bags)
  • 2 1/4 cups orange juice
  • 4 Gala apples, peeled, cored and diced
  • 4 Bosc pears, peeled, cored and diced
  • 3 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  1. Place cinnamon sticks, allspice berries and cloves onto the center of an 8 inch square of cheesecloth. Gather together the edges of the cloth and tie with kitchen twine.
  2. Place the sachet into large saucepan along with cranberries and orange juice
  3. Bring to boil over heat and cook until berries burst, about 10mins
  4. Stir in apples, pears, white sugar and brown sugar. Return to boil then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until apples and pears are slightly soft, 25mins
  5. Remove and discard the spice sachet.
  6. Pour into bowl and over
  7. Refrigerate overnight
  8. Serve cold
