Lisa has made this cranberry sauce for the holidays for several years now. The addition of the amaretto takes cranberry sauce to a higher level. Enjoy this for Thanksgiving. Besides serving it with turkey or other holiday meats, it is good on toast or biscuits, or over ice cream.

1 cup sugar
1 12 oz bag fresh cranberries
