1 12oz bag of cranberries
1 1/2 cups sugar(adjust as per sweetness desired)
1 cup orange juice
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
zest of half an orange
1.In a medium flame take the orange juice,spices and sugar in a saucepan and stir until sugar is completely dissolved.
2.Add the cranberries and let cook until the cranberries are soft(about 10 minutes).If you wish you can press the cranberries against the wall of the saucepan to mash them slightly.Remove from stove and let cool completely.
Cranberries can be very tart or less tart,so the sweetness level will need to be adjusted as per your choice.
This is traditionally served with Turkey for thanksgiving,I will also post a recipe with Brie cheese and cranberry sauce.
Other variations of this include ginger,maple syrup,slivered almonds can be added.
