Expert Tips

Give this cranberry sauce a kick by substituting lime peel for the orange and adding 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne) with the cinnamon.

Fresh cranberries are available this time of year, but frozen cranberries would also work.

Although traditionally served with turkey, cranberry sauce is a nice accompaniment for ham, too.
