Mulled-Cider Cranberry Sauce

This year, I'm making a slightly different cranberry sauce for the holidays. Yummy!


  • 12 oz. fresh cranberries
  • 1 TBS finely grated orange zest
  • 1 1/2 c apple cider
  • 1/3 c packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 firm apple (I use McIntosh, but Roma would work well too), peeled, cored, and finely diced
  1. Put all ingredients in a medium size heavy saucepan over medium heat; cook, stirring, until sugar dissolves, about 2 minutes.  Reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes, until cranberries soften and pop and sauce thickens, stirring occasionally.  
  2. Let cool, then cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.  The sauce will thicken more as it chills.
