Make your holidays brighter with this Cinnamon Orange Cranberry Sauce made with fresh orange juice and whole spices for a delightful Thanksgiving dish.
Rinse cranberries in a colander, removing any bruised and damaged cranberries.
Combine the water and sugar in a sauce pan over medium heat. Stir until sugar has dissolved and water is boilng.
Once dissolved add cranberries, orange juice, cinnamon sticks, and ground cloves. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until cranberries begin to burst and a thick sauce has formed, about 10 minutes.
Remove from heat, remove cinnamon sticks and let cool completely to room temperature. Sauce will thicken as it cools.
Serve at room temperature.
