Don’t use canned cranberries when a homemade sauce is so easy to make. Enjoy this spiced tea cranberry sauce on your Thanksgiving turkey or any white meat.

Tonight, I am sitting in front of the computer with a serious case of writer’s block. I come up with creative ideas and funny stories when I am ticked-off washing dishes or day dreaming while running errands. I started to write these ideas down, but sometimes the inspiration flutters away before I make it to the computer to add it to the list. Middle-Child just came into my office, with his puppy-dog eyes telling me he just wants to be with me. Total Mom-Guilt. I explain that I am trying to write about this cranberry sauce, but I didn’t know where to start. He said he would help me.

So, here is my 8-year-old talking about my favorite cranberry sauce: Spiced Tea Cranberry Sauce.

It’s Red.

It’s Juicy.

It has two cinnamon rolls.

It’s mushy.

It’s awfully good.

There Mommy, I helped you!

Kids are so direct and obvious.

Well, as the title explains, this is my go-to cranberry sauce. Years ago, I tore it out from a Sunset Magazine I found at the doctor’s office.

Don’t judge me. You know you do it, too.

I love the infusion of tea, cinnamon, anise and cardamom. I could just smell this sauce all day….

Luckily, it is equally delicious as it is aromatic.

Like my boy said, “It’s awfully good!”
