  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 medium cinnamon stick
  • teaspoon ¼Kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons grated peeled fresh ginger


  • Place the cranberries syrup, vanilla, water, cinnamon stick and salt in a medium sauce pan.
  • Bring it to a boil then reduce heat to medium-low until most of the berries burst; about 10 minutes. Note, when berries start to pop, they can spray juice around your kitchen.

  • Allow the cranberry sauce to cool, remove the cinnamon stick and add allspice, cloves, nutmeg, and ginger.
