Amaretto Cranberry Sauce
From DeDe
Cranberry Sauce Recipe from Heritage RecipesMy mother-in-law got this Amaretto Cranberry Sauce recipe from one of her daughter-in-laws who got it from someone at work.  I got the recipe and started to make this cranberry sauce for family and to give as gifts to co-workers.  I always tell everyone that it is a secret recipe. Everyone at work always asks me to be sure to give them a jar every Christmas.  They start asking in  October to be sure they will get one!
Amaretto Cranberry Sauce
1 cup  water
2 cups  sugar
1 12 oz  bags fresh cranberries
1/3 cup orange marmalade (Smuckers works best)
juice from 2 lemons
1/3 cup  Amaretto
1/3 cup  toasted slivered almonds
Mix water and sugar in saucepan and heat to boiling.  Add cranberries and cook for about 5 minutes.  Remove from heat.  Add marmalade and lemon juice.  Cool completely and add amaretto and almonds. 
Pour into glass jars and chill.  Keeps in refrigerator for months. 
Note from DeDe: Wonderful with turkey and stuffing, but also fantastic as sauce over ice cream or pound cake, cheesecake, pudding, etc.  This is a thin sauce and does not gel.  I suppose you could add gelatin if you wanted a more solid presentation for a turkey side.
