Cranberry sauce

What you need: Makes 3 cups
1 pound fresh cranberries, washed and dried
2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup water
1 Tbsp butter
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 orange, zested and juiced
pinch of salt

In a medium pot, combine the cranberries, and butter, saute for a minute until the butter melts. 


Add sugar and water. 


Stir to blend. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat. 


Reduce to a simmer and add the allspice and nutmeg. 


Stir to blend and simmer for an additional 5 to 7 minutes. 


I like all my cranberries to burst, but you can cook it for a few minutes less if you like them whole and pulpy. 


Add the orange juice and zest, stir and allow to cool before serving. Enjoy!
