How to Make Homemade Cranberry Sauce
Once you’ve zested your orange and minced your candied ginger, gather the rest of your ingredients: cranberries, red wine, brown sugar, the candied ginger, the orange zest, cinnamon, allspice and ground cloves.
Combine all that in a saucepan, bring to a boil and then simmer. Transfer to a bowl and chill.
That’s it. That’s all that’s between you and this incredible cranberry sauce.
