Homemade Cranberry Sauce
OK, canned cranberry sauce is delicious. By far one of my favorite things about the holidays. Leftover turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sandwiches? Uhhhh yes please, I’ll take 3 a day. Now, as easy as it is to just open that can of cranberry sauce, this is almost equally as easy and probably 100 times more delicious. I add the orange and cinnamon for an unexpected twist to make it unique but if you want to leave it out and just have it plain you’re more than welcome to do that. This recipe is so ridiculously easy that if you don’t make this for every holiday you should feel very ashamed of yourself.
2 bags fresh cranberries
2 cups water
2 cups granulated sugar
2 cinnamon sticks, broken in half
zest of 2 oranges
juice of 2 oranges
In a pot over high heat add the cranberries, water, sugar, cinnamon sticks, zest, and juice
Stir around and let it come to a boil
As soon as it comes to a boil put on medium low heat and let simmer for 15 minutes stirring often
Once it has thickened up let cool and you’re ready to go. How ridiculously easy is that? Everyone will be very impressed. Happy Holidays everyone!!
