I tried a different concept this year for our cranberry sauce and for the most part am happy with it. I like to make it the night before so it is well chilled/set up.
Orange Cranberry Sauce
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup orange juice
1 1/2 Tbsp honey
1/8 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
12-ounces fresh cranberries (1 package)
In a heavy saucepan combine all the ingredients and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Lower the heat to medium low and simmer for about 12 minutes, stirring often.
Remove from the heat and press through a fine mesh sieve till all that is left is the cranberry peels. Refrigerate till needed. The sauce will be thick immediately.
