Cranberry Sauce with a Twist

1 (12 ounce) package fresh cranberries
1 cup of water
½ to 1 cup of sugar (this is to taste- I lean towards more of a whole cup)
1 tsp of ground cinnamon
¼ tsp of ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground all spice
1 pint of fresh blueberries

Wash and pick over cranberries. Place in a medium saucepan with water, and sugar. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, stir and simmer for 10 minutes or until cranberries burst.

Slightly mash the cranberries with the back of a wooden spoon to insure all skins are broken. Add the cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. Mix well.

Remove from heat and mix in the blueberries (don't be afraid to break a few, but don't over mash either). The sauce will thicken as it cools.

Transfer to a bowl, cool slightly and place plastic wrap directly on top of sauce to cover. Refrigerate until chilled.
