Recipe: Orange-Brandy Cranberry Sauce

This was the best cranberry sauce I have ever made and people at the party raved about out and even asked for the recipe. It does have a little alcohol in it so if you are making it for young family members you can either add it earlier so the alcohol burns off or replace it with some white grape juice or a touch of extra orange juice. This can be served right away but is best made at least a day before serving (the flavors get stronger as it sits). Simple store in the fridge. It can be served warm or cold depending on your personal taste.
