Recipe Summary test Servings: 9 Yield: 8 to 10 servings


1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 cup water

1 (12 ounce) package fresh cranberries

¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

? teaspoon ground allspice

½ cup white sugar

1 pint fresh blueberries


Wash and pick over cranberries. Place in a medium saucepan with water, and sugar. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, stir and simmer for 10 minutes or until cranberries burst.

Slightly mash the cranberries with the back of a wooden spoon to insure all skins are broken. Add the cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. Mix well.

Remove from heat and mix in the blueberries (don’t be afraid to break a few, but don’t over mash either). The sauce will thicken as it cools.

Transfer to a bowl, cool slightly and place plastic wrap directly on top of sauce to cover. Refrigerate until chilled.
