Looking for a great addition to your Thanksgiving feast? Hit the market for these simple ingredients: crystallized ginger in the spice aisle, and bags of fresh cranberries. Buy extra cranberries during the holiday season and freeze for use throughout the next year. Cranberries are naturally filled with proanthocyanidins (referred to as PACs) -- components that can help prevent certain bacteria from sticking inside the body. They also contain powerful antioxidants like vitamin C and flavonoids, helping prevent certain diseases.

Makes about 7 servings (2¨÷ cups, ¨÷ cup per serving)

Ingredients

1 bag (12 ounces) cranberries
1½ cups apple cider
¾ cup honey
1 tablespoon crystallized ginger, finely minced
1 tablespoon orange peel, grated
6 whole cloves
4 cinnamon sticks, broken in half

Directions

1. Combine all ingredients in large, heavy saucepan.

2. Bring to boil over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer, about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until berries burst and sauce thickens.

3. Remove cloves and cinnamon sticks; refrigerate sauce until cold.
