I love a good Cranberry Sauce during the holidays.  Made with fresh cranberries, of course.  No creepy, out of the can gelatin stuff for me.  Save a little time on tomorrow by making this great holiday side today.  It is best when the flavors have time to meld together.

This is my favorite cranberry sauce recipe.  A touch of spice and hint of orange.  The flavors are so good when they’ve had time to come together for a day or so.  It is also fabulous as the topping on a baked brie.  I find so many ways to enjoy this in November and December.  I know you will, too!
