I see so many people eating canned cranberry sauce for thanksgiving, christmas and any other occasion where cranberry sauce is a necessity and I often wonder, why not make it homemade?! It’s one of the simpler sauces to make and I figured out that maybe people just don’t realize how simple it really is. So here’s my super basic, super fast cranberry sauce that is delicious!
You will need: Cranberries, sugar, water, cinnamon and a sauce pot.
First, get your delicious cranberries fresh or frozen (if they are frozen defrost them beforehand.) You will need 4 cups of cranberries.
Next measure out 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water.
On high heat, bring sugar and water to a boil, making sure that the sugar is dissolved.
Once it is boiling, add the cranberries.
You want to turn down the stove at this point to a low simmer (bubbling but not boiling.)
Once the cranberries are burst, (after about 10-15 minutes.) You will remove it from heat and you can add cinnamon or any other spice of your choosing. You will want to transfer it into a serving dish and store in fridge until it’s time to serve.
It is important to remember that as it cools it will thicken, so give it a stir before serving.
That’s all there is to it, simple cranberry sauce that is way better than the sauce that comes out still looking like the can it came in.
