Cranberry Sauce


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.



Cranberry Sauce

From All Recipes

Ingredients:
1 bag (12 oz bag) Cranberries
1 cup Orange juice (or any other juice)
1 cup white sugar

Directions:
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.
