Alice Currah of SavorySweetLife.com

 Your Ultimate Thanksgiving Menu

Ingredients
12 oz bag fresh cranberries
¾ cup orange juice
⅔ cup brown sugar
⅓ cup white sugar
Optional: 2 oz gold rum

Instructions
1. Place all the ingredients in a sauce pan and cook on medium-high for 15-20 minutes or until most of the liquid has reduced — stirring occasionally. You'll hear the cranberries popping — don't worry, that’s what you want them to do.
2. Remove from heat and serve. Cranberry sauce can be made days ahead and brought to room temperature or slightly heated before serving.
