Cranberry Elixir

27 November 2010

1-1/2 to 2 cups fresh cranberries

1 cup water

3/4 cup sugar

2 cinnamon sticks

5 whole cloves

5 whole allspice berries

1. Place spices in cheesecloth or spice bag and tie tightly with kitchen twine.

2. Place cranberries, water and sugar into a medium saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to low and simmer until the berries begin to break apart (about 15 minutes).

3. Strain through a fine sieve (I use a metal coffee filter) and allow to drain for about an hour.   Bottle and refrigerate. Add to champagne, vodka, or apple cider for a taste of the holidays right in your glass!
