As a child, as a teenager, as a young adult, as a middle aged married man and as an old fuddy duddy, one thing Larry was never Thankful for at Thanksgiving nor asked Santa for at Christmas was Cranberry Sauce.  He loathed it.  However, now that he's a food fuddie, he has found cranberries that he likes.  He says it's because they have brandy in them and everything goes better with brandy.  

Trust Larry, if you've never liked cranberries (and even if you have) you will love these!  They are delicious!


1 Whole Orange, finely chopped in food processor
1/2 cup water
2 Cinnamon Sticks
5 whole Cloves
1 pound raw Cranberries
2 cups Sugar
1/2 cup Brandy

Mix together the chopped orange, water, cinnamon sticks and cloves.  Bring to a boil and allow to boil for ten minutes.  Add cranberries and sugar.  Cook at a good simmer until cranberries pop.  Remove from heat, add brandy.  Cool and refrigerate.
