Cinnamon and Ginger Cranberry Sauce

This home-made cranberry sauce can be made in minutes; is ridiculously easy; and absolutely scrumptious. Once you make this, you will never be caught dead buying a jar of pre-made cranberry sauce again. I have always loved cranberry sauce, and this blend is a winner. I have deliberately kept it very basic. I just love the simplicity of the flavors - the hint of spice that is lifted with the zest of the oranges. But feel free to jazz this up; blend and taste; and add in the quantities of cinnamon, ginger and sweetener that work for you. This was my perfect blend. But you might want more spice. I liked just a hint, in order to let the cranberries have their moment. Just remember that the flavors will infuse in the fridge. Like a good sangria - this actually tastes better with time. If you can wait that long! Make a double or triple batch and take as glorious home-made gifts for those Christmas parties this year. This sauce is fantastic for the Christmas table.
