Thanksgiving Day Cranberry Sauce

We all know what the typical tradition is on Thanksgiving...
Fair enough.

But if you're still eating cranberry sauce out of a can... um, well, it sucks to be you. It's simple really... Here's the remedy to your situation.

First, get yourself some fresh cranberries. You're only going to use about three cups, but go ahead and pick up a little extra, they're good and tart just eaten raw, and go good in smoothies and stuff. So it's ok to have a little extra.

First off, rinse your berries. Then in a saucepan mix 3 cups of water with 1 cup of suger. Boil that until the sugar is dissolved. Then add your cranberries and boil gently until the skins pop... about 5 minutes.

Then remove from heat and serve. I swear you'll never go back to canned again.


  1. That sauce looks delicious. I do think It could be enhanced with a little citrus. Maybe a can of tangerine or orange slices... :)

  2. But then you'd be left with a fruit salad of some sort... it wouldn't be cranberry sauce.

  3. O.K. then just orange zest... It really enhances the flavor.
