Spiced Cranberry Sauce

Can you believe Thanksgiving is this Thursday, I have a delicious recipe for Spiced Cranberry Sauce that is so simple to make!

Spiced Holiday cranberry sauce


Spiced Cranberry Sauce


2 Cups fresh or frozen cranberries

2 Tablespoons Sugar in The Raw

1 Teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/8 Teaspoon ground clove

1/3 Cup pomegranate juice

Place all the ingredients in a heavy, medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Simmer until the cranberries pop and soften, this takes about 10 minutes. Transfer to a serving bowl and cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours before serving to allow the flavors to meld. Cranberry sauce keeps for up to 3 days, tightly covered in the refrigerator.

Note: When doubling this recipe, do not double the cinnamon and liquid. Increase the cinnamon to 1 1/2 teaspoons and the juice to 1/2 cup.


Hope everyone surrounds themselves with those you love and be thankful for all of lives blessings this Thanksgiving day!

Inspire Me Monday #138

Welcome to Inspire Me Monday, thanks so much for being here!  We have had incredible weather the past week so It’s been really strange decorating for Christmas while in the 90’s.  (I know, crazy job makes me decorate SUPER early)  Our youngest has been so sick and has missed over a week of school but today he finally is doing better. (Thank GOD) We are still waiting on blood work so I think we will head to the beach so he can get some vitamin D and fill him up with ice cream to pack those lost pounds back on him.
