We always have two kinds of cranberry sauce at our holiday tables because there are some people that just HAVE to have the canned kind!  It is quite the debate and always reminds me of that Friends episode when Monica has to make multiple kinds of potatoes for Thanksgiving because everyone needs their tradition. I myself love the fresh sauce like this Ginger Orange Cranberry Sauce.

The addition of ginger gives it just a little extra spice and kick, but not making it spicy.  The sauce is not overly sweet, but rather balanced with sweet and a little tart from the berries.  To make a sweeter sauce, increase the sugar to 1/2 cup.  Cranberry and ginger are one of my favorite holiday flavor combinations.  Find more of our recipes featuring cranberry and ginger here!
