Cranberry Sauce

November 19th, 2009 by katie

I never ate cranberry sauce as a kid, it was only as an adult that I recognized it’s sweet-tart flavor was a great foil to the piles of savory starches on my Thanksgiving plate.  Cranberry sauce is super easy to make and keeps well in the fridge.  It’s as easy side to make a day or two in advance just don’t forget it a serving time!

Classic Cranberry Sauce

makes 2 cups, prep 1 min, cook 10 min
  • 1 pound fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup sugar
  1. Combine all three ingredients in a medium pot.
  2. Bring to a boil and simmer until cranberries burst and liquid thickens.
  3. Strain, if desired, and chill.

If you like it chunky you will get about 3 cups of sauce.

    On our table we do a “shape of the can version” and I do a version close to your recipe from scratch I add orange zest. and seems that my cranberry from scratch is more popular season after season!

    This is the easiest version I have seen yet. We are the can people too but I must try this recipe!
