With a little doctoring, we turned our recipe for Basic Cranberry Sauce into a versatile Tangy Cranberry Sandwich Spread.

The standard back-of-the-bag recipe for cranberry sauce was a little soupy. Cranberries contain a lot of water, and cutting down on the additional liquid yields the ideal consistency. We found frozen cranberries worked equally well as fresh, but we needed to increase the cooking time slightly. Leaving the cranberry sauce for our Tangy Cranberry Sandwich Spread on the stove for too long left us with a mushy red mash, so it was important to keep a close eye on it as it cooked.

Makes about 1 cup

Fresh and frozen cranberries work equally well. If you are using frozen, add one to two minutes to the cooking time.
