Canned cranberry sauce may be convenient but it doesn't compare to freshly made. We have local Vermont cranberries in our produce department and they would make an excellent sauce to accompany your Thanksgiving turkey. From start to finish, this cranberry sauce takes less than 20 minutes.
Combine all ingredients in a small pot over medium heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until the cranberries are soft, about 10-15 minutes. If the pan becomes too dry, add 1/4 cup water. When done, taste and adjust the spices to your liking.
