I’ve always had cranberry sauce out of the can, you know the one that you just dump out and cut in slices and serve. It seems a lot of people do that and that circle is almost a part of pictured holiday meals. This year however, my husband’s aunt made homemade cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving and it was delicious! I tried my hand at it for Christmas and it was so good and a cinch to make! Here’s what you’ll need!
– 1 twelve ounce bag fresh cranberries. Watch for these to go on sale around the Holidays and then grab a few. You can freeze them very successfully and have fresh cranberries the whole year through!
– 1 cup water
– 1 cup sugar
Rinse and drain cranberries. Add sugar and water to a medium saucepan. Stir and then bring the mixture to a boil. Add cranberries, and return to a boil. Reduce heat and boil gently for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Once cooked, pour cranberry sauce into a bowl and allow to cool. Once cooled, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Easy peasy!
