Holiday Cranberry Sauce
4 cups fresh cranberries
1 1/2 cups water
5 whole cloves
5 whole allspice berries
3 cinnamon sticks
2 cups white sugar
Place fresh cranberries and water in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
Wrap cloves, allspice berries and cinnamon sticks in a spice bag. Place in the water with cranberries.
Cook until cranberries begin to burst, about 10 minutes.
Stir in sugar and reduce heat to low. Continue cooking 5 minutes, or until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and allow cooling. Discard spice bag. Chill in the refrigerator 8 hours, or overnight, before serving.
