Spicy Cranberry Sauce

Hi there! I took a little break, but I’m back!⁣⁣⁣⁣I’ll admit, I’m a fan of canberry (canned cranberry) sauce. It’s a terrible confession, I know. ⁣⁣⁣⁣This year, though, I’ve been craving some fresh, homemade cran. I haven’t made it in years and was reminded of a recipe from my old friend, Travis, who I’ve reconnected with recently. So, I decided to wing it, with his recipe in mind, and the result was fabulous! This cranberry sauce is spicy and flavorful. Enjoy! ⁣⁣⁣⁣• 12 oz fresh cranberries⁣⁣• 1 12 oz can of ginger ale (𝘐 𝘶𝘴𝘦𝘥 𝘊𝘢𝘯𝘢𝘥𝘢 𝘋𝘳𝘺 𝘉𝘰𝘭𝘥 𝘎𝘪𝘯𝘨𝘦𝘳 𝘈𝘭𝘦)⁣⁣• 1/2 cup orange juice⁣⁣• The zest and juice from 1 orange⁣⁣• 1 cup sugar⁣⁣• 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon⁣⁣• 1/2 teaspoon cloves⁣⁣• 1/4 teaspoon allspice⁣⁣⁣⁣𝘊𝘰𝘮𝘣𝘪𝘯𝘦 𝘢𝘭𝘭 𝘪𝘯𝘨𝘳𝘦𝘥𝘪𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘴 𝘪𝘯 𝘢 𝘱𝘰𝘵 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘣𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘵𝘰 𝘢 𝘣𝘰𝘪𝘭.
