Weekend Recipe - Cranberry Sauce
This fall specialty is perfectly enhanced with a few herbs and spices. And this is a truly easy recipe to whip up for the big day especially because you make it a day before you serve it so that it can chill and set.
2 cups water
2 cups sugar
4 cups cranberries (1 lb. package)
1 Tbls. grated orange zest
½ tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. almond extract
1 ½ tsp. lemon balm
Bring water and sugar to a boil. Boil for three minutes. Add cranberries and return to boil. Boil until berries pop (about 5 to 7 minutes.) Mix in the spices and seasonings and stir well. Transfer to a serving bowl and refrigerator until completely cool. Serve the next day.
If you have Backyard Patch Cinnful Dessert Blend, you can substitute that for the Cinnamon and Nutmeg called for the in this recipe!
