I don't have that kind of coffee maker....Can you tie the cloves, cinnamon in cloth, heat liquids and stir in brown sugar?

Mrs. Hoggle’s Hot Cranberry Cider IS SO AWESOME.i LOVE IT AND ITS DO EASY.If your cranberry sauce formula means opening a can, then you might need to expand your recipe book. You should get more than just a red jelly out of your cranberry sauce recipe. There are multiple ways you could approach a cranberry sauce formula and pull even more flavor out of this Thanksgiving side dish.
