Give Thanks Sauce

Cranberry Sauce is just the right addition to the traditional Thanksgiving table, and this sauce, with honey, oranges, and spices is extra yummy!

I made the red work bread basket liner years ago, and love pulling it out each year.

Spiced Cranberry Sauce serves 8

3/4 Cup white sugar
1/2 Cup brown sugar
1/4 Cup honey
2 oranges, peeled and chopped (and all the juice)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon ginger
dash of cloves
12 ounces fresh cranberries, sorted and washed
2 tsp. orange zest, optional

Boil all the ingredients over medium heat, except zest. Reduce heat and simmer 12-15 minutes. Remove from heat. Add orange zest if desired. Cool and refrigerate.

(I make a batch of plain cranberry sauce too. So I garnish the spiced one with orange peel and whole allspice.)

Make it a Wonderful Day!
