31 Days of Holiday Baking - Day 11 :: Cranberry Sauce

Notice the lovely $6 milk glass dish I picked up at Sally Ann last week?
 Don't worry, dinner guests,  we soaked it in bleach before we used it. lol

Cranberry Sauce

Homemade cranberry sauce is so good, and so amazingly simple to make, that I wonder why anyone would buy the canned stuff! Anyway, that is just my opinion. Do you make your own?

Here's the very simple, no brainer recipe that I use! It's the recipe that comes on the bag, in fact.

1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 bag of fresh cranberries (substitute any other fruit to make a luscious topping for waffles, pancakes or ice cream)

Combine water and sugar in a saucepan. Once it reaches the boil, add cranberries. Boil until the cranberries pop - about 5 minutes. Mash slightly with a potato masher. I like my cranberry sauce nice and chunky. I suppose you could mash it to smithereens or purée it, etc., but I don't do that!

I made a double batch this time at the request of my kids. They wanted it for their turkey sandwiches!

Another very lovely recipe to try is the Cranberry Lemon Loaf that I made last year. I'll be making these again for sure. They'll make great gifts all wrapped up pretty with a bow. 

Have a wonderful week!
