Spice-Scented Cranberry Sauce

  • Yield 4 cups

Ginger, allspice and cinnamon boost the flavor of this holiday cranberry sauce.


1 -- (12-ounce) bad cranberries, rinsed and picked over
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon allspice
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
-- Freshly ground black pepper, to taste


  1. Add all ingredients to a heavy-bottomed 2-quart pot, and stir to combine. Cover pot and bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat (keep a close eye because if it boils over it'll make a mess of your stove—I speak from experience and too much multitasking!).
  2. Remove lid, reduce heat to a simmer and let cook, stirring occasionally, until thick and jam-like, about 15 to 17 minutes. Let cool to room temperature or chill before serving. May be prepared and stored in an air-tight container up to two days in advance.
