Making Cranberry Sauce for Thanksgiving

  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 1 tbsp. organic mulling spices (allspice, cloves, ginger, cinnamon)
  • 1 & 1/2 pounds fresh cranberries
  • 1/2  cup maple sugar (can use beet sugar or cane sugar)
  • Sea salt

Wrap mulling spices in a cheese cloth. Bring apple juice and mulling spices up to a boil.  Add half of the cranberries and all of the sugar, and bring back up to a boil. Lower heat to medium/low and cook 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add remaining cranberries and a pinch or two of sea salt. Cook additional 10 minutes and add more sugar if needed. You can also use this cranberry sauce as a jam to spread on bread. It’s delicious!
