"This cranberry sauce is spiced perfectly for the Christmas bird! Put the cloves in a tea diffuser or a wee piece of cheese cloth, so you don't have to fish for them later. You can make this a couple of days ahead and refrigerate."

Ohhhh, this is such a good cranberry sauce! In my opinion, it's one of the better cranberry sauces that I have made or have had, Period! We all Loved it. I followed the recipe, except that I added a bit of cornstarch slurry at the end because in case it wouldn't firm up, but next time I'm not going to use it because it may not need it. I also added an additional cinnamon stick, just because I love cinnamon. Next time, and there will be a next time, I may add ground cloves instead of the whole so as not to chew on it by mistake, but that's a maybe because it was perfect! Thank you Luvcookn for sharing. Made it for PickMe Tag.
