Angostura Cranberry Sauce

This version of classic Thanksgiving cranberry sauces mixes it up with the addition of Angostura Bitters. Angostura Bitters have some great spice notes reminiscent of classic holiday flavors, like allspice and cloves, so their use in this sauce works wonderfully.

Angostura Cranberry Sauce


  • 12 ounces fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1 cup turbinado sugar
