Bourbon Cranberry Sauce

We were heading to my in-laws’ house for round 2 of Thanksgiving dinner, but I noticed a big problem. There was no more Bourbon Cranberry Sauce. It got devoured on Thursday evening. So I made another batch. This time, to prevent any potential overflows in the oven, I decided to try it out on the stovetop. It worked out perfectly, and it was even done in about half the time! I just simmered it, covered, stirring twice. It made it even easier, and it may have somehow even tasted better this time around!
