Mulling Spiced Cranberry Sauce

Mulling Spices Cranberry Sauce

Author Eric Samuelson


  • 12 oz fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 heaping tablespoon mulling spices


  • Bring the water and mulling spices to a boil in a large pan. Once you reach a boil, remove from the heat. Allow the spices to seep for 30 minutes. Strain out the spices.
  • Add the sugar and bring back to a boil. Add the cranberries.
  • Turn the heat down until the mixture is boiling gently. If you let the mixture boil too hard you may get burned.
  • Let it boil for 10 minutes. You can check if the sauce is done by putting a little dab on a plate and placing it in the freezer. Wait one mintue. If it's firm then it's done.
  • If you wish to make whole cranberry sauce, just pour it into a bowl.
  • For jellied sauce: push the mixture through a sieve to strain out the skins. This will produce a sauce just like from a can.
