Spiced Cranberry Sauce
Makes 4 cups
This recipe comes nearly entirely from my copy of The Fannie Farmer Cookbook 12th edition, published in 1980 - found in a free pile and now amongst my most-treasured possessions! It’s cover was torn off long ago, and now it’s replaced by a dingy brown paper bag and Scotch tape. But despite it’s outward homeliness I can always find something beautiful and inspiring inside! This spiced cranberry sauce is a simple variation of classic cranberry sauce and has become a favorite around my holiday table.
2 cups clean water (well, spring or filtered)
2-inches of cinnamon stick
3 allspice berries
1 pound fresh cranberries (about 4 cups)
2 cups evaporated cane sugar
Bring the water to boil in a medium saucepan set over high heat. Place the cinnamon stick, cloves and allspice berries in a muslin spice bag and secure the tie tightly (alternately, use a small piece of tightly woven cheesecloth and a piece of twine to arrange a small spice sachet). Add the bag of spices and cranberries to the boiling water. Bring them to a boil. Reduce the heat to maintain a slow, low simmer. Simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Carefully remove the spice bag using a slotted spoon or tongs. Add the sugar. Return the sauce to a slow simmer. Cook for 3 more minutes stirring constantly to prevent scalding. Remove from the heat. Use a small ladle to remove any accumulated scum from the surface of the sauce.
Package the sauce into two pint-sized mason jars or into two small serving dishes. Chill before serving. The sauce will keep tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to one month.
