Cranberry Sauce with Cognac Recipe

Ingredients
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  • 3 tablespoons cognac or brandy
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup fresh orange juice
  • 3 whole allspice
  • 2 whole cloves
  • 4 black peppercorns
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 piece cinnamon stick (1/2 inch piece)
Directions
In a medium saucepan, combine cranberries, cognac, sugar, and orange juice. Place allspice, cloves, peppercorns, red pepper flakes, and cinnamon stick in a double layer of cheesecloth. Bundle it up and tie with kitchen string. Add to saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring often, until syrupy, 15-20 minutes. Discard spice packet. Transfer to a bowl, let cool, and refrigerate.

One of these is never enough. I always have 2 or 3 pots going at a time. It doesn't come out the same if you double the recipe and add to the same pot; better to do each individually. After tasting this delicious cranberry sauce, you will never go back to the can again.
