Martha's textbook cranberry sauce teams whole berries with bright orange (zested and juiced) and spicy cinnamon. Use any leftovers to make Cranberry Swirl Cheesecake or Chicken a la Cranberry.

    It seems that every year I try a different "take" on cranberry sauce, hoping to find a keeper. This year I went straight to Martha, made up a trial batch and KNEW i had found my new tradition. This sauce (3 batches) got me through the holiday and a house full of guests. We used it as a condiment for dinner, a dressing for leftover turkey sandwiches, a sauce for creamy oatmeal and to highlight plain yogurt. I think my son-in-law even used it on his vanilla ice cream! It really cannot be matched for simplicity and each flavor pops as you savor it. This is the CLASSIC!
