Ginger Cranberry Sauce

This isn't any different than a normal cranberry sauce recipe you'd find on the back of a bag of cranberries. However, I've always found that cranberry sauce too sweet and like to spice it up a bit with a few other flavors. I would probably put more ginger in mine next time, but I suppose it depends how spicy you like it.

The only downside of cranberry sauce: it makes me wish I could find cranberries in the store all year, not just in that glorious period between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
