Homemade cranberry sauce is ridiculously easy to make. I like to make it a couple of days in advance.
- 2 cups cranberries
- 2 tablespoons Cognac
- 1 cup brown sugar
- ¼ cup orange juice
- 3 allspice berries
- 2 cloves
- 1 black peppercorn
- dash of red pepper flakes
Combine all of the spices in a cheesecloth and tie in a knot.
Bring all ingredients to a boil in a saucepan over medium high heat. Reduce to simmer, stirring often for 20 minutes.
Discard the cheesecloth bundle and cool.
