Apricot-Almond Cranberry Sauce

Why open a can of cranberry sauce when you can make your own so easily? And this one is really special. It's laced with the flavors of apricot and almond and is tart and delicious, as cranberries should be. (If you don't like it as tart, you can add a little extra sugar.)

Makes 9 servings (⅓ cup each serving) 

1 cup sugar
1 cup water
3 cups cranberries
⅓ cup fruit-only apricot spread
½ teaspoon almond extract

Gather your ingredients.

Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Continue to boil, without stirring, 5 minutes.

Stir in cranberries and cook.

Stirring occasionally, until cranberries burst and mixture comes to a full boil. Continue to boil 5 minutes.

Remove from heat and stir in apricot spread and almond extract.

Cool slightly, then chill.
