Spiced Cranberry Sauce and Spread
Fresh whole cranberries are available everywhere in the fall which means this is one of those seasonal treats that makes me look forward to cooler weather. This spread has a nice tart-sweet-spice taste that reminds me of those red spiced apple slices you used to be able to find in every grocery store. It was originally made to be a Thanksgiving dinner side dish that also goes well with leftovers, but it works wonders as a spread for ham, roast beef, chicken or turkey sandwiches. This also travels very well to add a gourmet touch to simple meals.
1 bag Cranberries
1/2 Cup Honey
3/4 Cup Water
2 Cinnamon Sticks
2 - 3 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
Clean the Cranberries. Put all of the ingredients in a pot, simmer, stirring occasionally until the consistency of jelly. Remove the cloves and cinnamon sticks then pour into a storage container to cool. Serve chilled. Keeps in the fridge for weeks.

You may notice that some of our recipes do not contain exact measurements for all ingredients. Cooking on the road is an art more than a science. We view each recipe as only a suggestion - a starting point for your own personal creativity.
We aren't usually dealing with food chemistry in these recipes since we aren't baking with leavening, etc., so feel free to use as much or as little of any suggested ingredient. Be creative and imaginative! Substitute the foods you like or have available for the ones in the recipes. And if you find something that turns out well for you, please share it with the rest of us.
