Grownup Cranberry Sauce

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.
