This is my absolute favorite cranberry sauce. The apple cider and hint of orange combined with the warm spices just makes it special.

Directions

  1. Combine the apple cider, sugar, cinnamon sticks, orange zest, and cloves in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Turn heat to low; simmer until sugar is dissolved and the flavors are blended, 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Stir cranberries into the saucepan, turn heat to high, and bring to a boil. Cook, stirring constantly, until cranberries begin to pop, 5 to 10 minutes. Reduce heat to low, and cook until sauce begins to thicken, about 5 minutes. Remove cinnamon sticks and cloves. Pour into shallow dish to cool and serve.

I'm the submitter of this recipe and I want it to be perfect, so please know that the simmer times need to be increased. When simmering the cider and spices, up the time to nearly an hour at a very low simmer, to reduce the cider somewhat. After adding the cranberries, simmer until nice and thick.

The taste was really good but it was too soupy even after adding gelatin to it. Next time I will use less apple cider, cut it down by 1/3.

I let this simmer on low for a good hour or so. It was thick and flavorful...perfect!
