Make this sauce up to a week before the feast for a smooth-sailing Thanksgiving day.
In a large saucepan, bring the cranberries, orange juice, figs, brown sugar, allspice, and 1/2 cup water to a simmer over medium-low heat. Simmer gently until most of the cranberries pop and soften and the sauce thickens, about 30 minutes.
Stir in the Candied Orange Peel. Season the cranberry sauce with salt and pepper.
