Cranberry Sauce

This recipe will have your salivary glands singing!

1 bag (12 oz.) fresh cranberries
1 and 1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1 cinnamon stick
a little under 1/2 tsp allspice
a little under 1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 small orange zested and juiced

In a saucepan, combine the cranberries, sugar, and water. Stir and bring mixture to a boil over medium heat. Reduce to simmer and add cinnamon stick, allspice, and nutmeg. Stir in spices and allow to simmer for 5 to 7 minutes. Add the orange juice and zest. Stir and allow to cool before serving.

I adjusted this recipe to work for a 12 oz. bag (since that is how they are sold), while the original recipe is for a pound (or 16 oz.) of cranberries. See the original recipe from the food network site.
