a different cranberry sauce

I felt like making some cranberry sauce this weekend as an easy snack.  A friend of mine a couple of holidays back hosted a great gathering of friends for an early Thanksgiving and she served a delicious cranberry sauce that included orange juice in lieu of water and some triple sec. Based on that I threw together the ingredients I could remember (without the alcohol) and added a couple spices.

12 oz bag fresh cranberries
3/4 cup orange juice
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup white sugar
Throw in some Nutmeg and Cinnamon

I put all the ingredients in a sauce pan and cooked them on medium-high heat for 15-20 minutes or until most of the liquid has reduced. Stir occasionally. Cranberries will start popping (don’t worry, that’s what you want them to do). And if you partially cover the pan like I did keep an eye out for the boiling up, which could've been really messy had I not noticed. Remove from heat and serve!
