Adding orange/lemon zest adds a lot of flavor to cranberry sauce, as does a bit of cinnamon. I also like to use dark brown sugar rather than white, which makes it seem a little more like a chutney, especially if you add a little bit of apple cider vinegar, sautéed shallots, cumin & coriander seeds to the mix. There are a lot of options when making cranberry sauce.
