This is a traditional Thanksgiving side dish that I just love. The Cointreau adds a nice little zing to the standard recipe.

Homemade Fresh Cranberry Sauce
Makes 4 cups

1 cup water
1 cup sugar
3 cups (1 12-oz bag) fresh cranberries
1 tbsp Cointreau

In a medium saucepan combine the sugar and water. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Boil rapidly for 5 minutes. Add cranberries. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Boil gently, uncovered, over medium-high heat for 3 to 4 minutes or until skins pop, stirring occasionally. Add the Cointreau and stir to combine. Remove from heat. Serve warm or chilled as desired.
