I had never had "fresh cranberry sauce" before I tried this, it was delicious. I got the basic idea of the recipe out of a magazine, but added the apple, and orange to add to the flavor.


  1. In a sauce pan add sugar, brown sugar, the spices, orange peel, and wine.
  2. Stir together, and cook on medium heat until sugar is dissolved, and ingredients make a"syrup".
  3. Strain off spices (You can if preferred put spices in a piece of cheese cloth, and make a spice bag, then just remove the bag). Wash cranberries in a colander under cold water, and drain.
  4. Add the apple, the mandarin oranges, and the cranberries to the syrup, and cook over medium heat until the cranberries "pop".
  5. Cool and serve.
