Cranberry Rum Sauce

My favorite food around this time of year is cranberry sauce.  I love this sauce over Greek yogurt, in my oatmeal, over warm pancakes or just on its own slightly heated up.  It is slightly tart and the rum adds a great warming flavor.  If you prefer your cranberry sauce sweet feel free to add up to one cup of sugar to this recipe.  I would rather my cranberry sauce to be less sweet, allowing the flavor of the rum and cranberry to really shine.

I also prefer my sauce to be a bit runny.  I don’t like all that congealed nonsense.
