Thanksgiving | Cranberry Sauce

What is Thanksgiving without cranberry sauce?  I really can't do the canned versions mainly because it can be made ahead of time and is ridiculously easy to make it at home!  Besides, it looks weird coming out of the can all ribbed and such...  Just creepy.

Cranberry Sauce

Makes 3 cups

12 oz fresh or frozen cranberries (approximately 3 cups), rinsed
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup fresh orange juice with pulp
3/4 cup granulated sugar
  1. In a medium sauce pan dissolve sugar in water and orange juice over medium low heat.
  2. Then add cranberries and return to a gentle boil for 10 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat.
  4. Serve warm or let the sauce completely cool.
  5. Refrigerate until ready to serve if needed.
One of my favorite parts about Thanksgiving is eating cranberry sauce and turkey sandwiches for lunch the week after!  One of my favorite sandwiches (cream cheese and onions too if you are interested!)

Do you make cranberry sauce or do you buy it?  Now that you know how easy it is, will you try to make it at home this year?

PS--Don't forget to enter the crock-pot giveaway!  The winner will be announced tomorrow!
