The spices in this give a great taste to the cranberries


  • • 1 (12 ounce) bag cranberries

  • • 1/2 cup honey

  • • 2-3 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar (or to taste)

  • • 2 cinnamon sticks (3-inch)

  • • 6 whole cloves

  • • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg (or to taste)

  • • 3/4 cup water (I use orange juice instead of water)


  • 1.

    Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and simmer, covered, stirring occasionally for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the cranberries have burst and the mixture has thickened.

  • 2.

    (I put the cloves in a tea diffuser for easier removal and usually cook the sauce a little longer than the time given.).

  • 3.

    Transfer the sauce to a bowl and let cool.

  • 4.

    The sauce may be made 2 days in advance and kept covered and chilled.
