This year for Thanksgiving I wanted to make homemade cranberry sauce. Since this was my first time making it, I decided to go with a traditional simple recipe I found on allrecipes. It was delicious and very easy. I will definitely make this every Thanksgiving, although I might try different variations. I love the idea of pomegranate juice and seeds in the mix. so that will probably be the variation I try next.
From All Recipes
1 bag (12 oz bag) Cranberries
1 cup Orange juice (or any other juice)
1 cup white sugar
1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, dissolve the sugar in the orange juice. Stir in the cranberries and cook until the cranberries start to pop (10-20 minutes).
2. Remove from heat and place sauce in a bowl or jar. Completely cool at room temperature then chill in refrigerator. Sauce will thicken as it cools.
Note: You can add many different things to the sauce - orange zest, raisins, currants, blueberries, raspberries, pomegranates, etc. Some spices can be added as well: cinnamon, nutmeg, or allspice.
