Cranberry Sauce

There is nothing like a good cranberry sauce for Christmas. Put the sauce in jars with a bow, and it makes the perfect last minute gift. In the case of cranberries, you don’t need to buy fresh cranberries if you can’t find them-frozen work just as well because you are cooking them down. This recipe is flavoured with orange, port, and all of the winter spices and it couldn’t be easier. Simply add all of the ingredients into a pan, and cook down until it is a nice thick/jam consistency.
