Comments: A friend of mine makes a fantastic cranberry sauce with chipotle chiles and star anise. If you want to try it, add 2 canned chipotle chilies, chopped, and 2 star anise to the cranberries and water with the rest of the ingredients. The bourbon gives the sauce a wonderful fruity flavour. Add more to taste if you like.
