Cranberry Sauce – Basic

This is the reigning cranberry sauce at Thanksgiving in my house – though it not my favorite – and it is easy and simple.  3 ingredients and less than 15 minutes and you should make it ahead of time (1 or 2 days prior).20161122_094338

What you’ll need:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 12 oz of fresh cranberries, rinsed

Place the water and sugar in a nonreactive pan (i.e. not aluminum) and bring to a boil until sugar is dissolved.  Add your cranberries and bring back to a boil.

Reduce heat to low and cook for 10 minutes.  Remove from heat and put into a lidded bowl and refrigerate.

Done.  That is it!

If you want to add more flavor you can swap out the water for orange juice (low pulp or fresh).

Happy Thanksgiving!
