Spicy Cranberries

READY IN: 3mins
Recipe by roslan

I prefer the taste of this recipe as opposed to canned cranberry sauce. The recipe comes from our favourite cookbook, Better Homes and Gardens, Cooking for Two.

Quick, easy and good. Is there anything else? My DD made this without changes. We liked it but wanted it to be more jell-like so I put it back on the burner for about 5 more minutes. More berries popped, the pectin was released and it was delish. The cinnamon is a really nice touch. Edit: This has become my DD's speciality at Thanksgiving.


  1. Combine water and sugar in a small saucepan.
  2. Add cinnamon.
  3. Bring to a boil, stirring till sugar dissolves.
  4. Add cranberries and boil rapidly till berries begin to pop, about 2 minutes.
  5. Chill.
  6. Remove cinnamon.
