Cranberry Sauce Recipe Round-Up: Pumpkin Spice, plus Savory, Jiggly & Barbie's too...

I thought it would be fun to try a new Pumpkin Spice Cranberry Sauce (hello three ingredients!). This is a very simple recipe, cranberries, sugar and pumpkin spice, add in about 15 minutes of cooking time and wa-la, we have a nicely spiced holiday favorite. There is a lot of wiggle room here folks, want it sweeter? Add more sugar. Want more punch from the spices? Stir in more at the end. Want to add a little something extra? I'm thinking stirring in some chopped pecans before serving would be nice. Cook this a day or two ahead, it will thicken as it chills in the refrigerator. 
Plan on approximately 1 C sauce from each 1 C whole cranberries.

Looking for a few other ideas?
Longer ingredient list and more involved, but worth it!

Love the addition of bay leaves, it smells good cooking for a few hours too.

Yep, guaranteed giggles and just look at that beautiful color folks:@)

And no matter what other recipe I make, 
Thanksgiving at our house ~requires~ jellied cranberry sauce from the can... 
So I wanted to come up with an easy cranberry platter for Barbie, and I think I found it. 

Pumpkin Spice Cranberry Sauce
For each 1 C cranberries, fresh or frozen, washed, stems picked off:
1/3 C sugar-add more if desired
1/4 tsp pumpkin spice 
1/3 C water
1/4 tsp pumpkin spice off stove
  1. Add first four ingredients to pot, bring to boil, reduce heat to simmer.
  2. Crush berries as they begin to pop, taste it and add more sugar if desired.
  3. Cook for about 5 minutes once berries are crushed. 
  4. Remove from heat and stir in extra pumpkin spice.
  5. Let cool, cover and store in refrigerator to thicken.

~ Eat well and have a happy holiday season:@)
