Spiced Cranberries

Canning for a New Generation was given to me as a gift a while back, and I’m finally getting around to cooking up one of the recipes. In the spirit of the holidays I canned some Spiced Cranberries. I’ve never worked with fresh cranberries it was surprisingly easy. I don’t think I will be buying canned cranberries again anytime soon.

The ingredient list is short and sweet and you can find a full recipe here.

  • 6 cups fresh cranberries (two 12-ounce bags), washed and drained
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/2 cup orange liqueur such as Cointreau, Grand Marnier, or triple sec
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

I’m thinking I’ll bring this to Thanksgiving Dinner along with extra for a hostess gift. Perfectly paired with yummy cheeses, or for spreading on that day after turkey sandwich.
