    Homemade Spiced Cranberry Sauce: Recipe

    I seriously cannot believe that Thanksgiving is this week! Where in the world has this year gone? While I hate how fast time is passing, I absolutley LOVE this time of year. I love the family time and activities, the smells, the sounds, the crisp chill in the air….I just love it! On top of all the things I love…food is at the top of the list, right under family! 😉 I am sure that my family is pretty much just like yours; we have our Thanksgiving food traditions. One of our favorites, (and when I say our, I really mean, Jos and myself), is the homemade cranberry sauce. Every year I make it, and I usually add a can of tart cherries to the cranberry sauce, but this year, I am switching it up! This year I am making spiced cranberry sauce!!

    Pour sauce into bowl, cover, and cool completely. Bring to room temperature. ( I cooked and cooled my cranberry sauce in this BEAUTIFUL dutch oven from Reed Drummond’s, The Pioneer Woman line sold at Wal-Mart. When I saw this dutch oven in the store, I had to get it! It is so pretty, and the price was on point!! I got it for a little over $19.00!)

    Refrigerate until serving time. I served mine in the perfect plum ramekins that I found at TJ Maxx…while standing in the checkout line…go figure, right? LOL!

    Right before serving, top with freshly grated mandarin orange zest.
