Cranberry sauce is one of my favorite things to eat at Thanksgiving dinner. While grocery shopping I saw bags of cranberries and got excited. I have never bought fresh cranberries before, let alone make my own cranberry sauce, but figured that I could try.
Prep Time: 5 mins
Cook Time: 10 mins
What you will need:
- 4 Cups of Cranberries
- 1 Cup of Sugar
- 1 Cup of Water
- Cinnamon, Nutmeg, All Spice (optional)
- Crushed Nuts, Raisins (optional)
In a sauce pan, bring the water to a boil and then add the sugar. Stir until the sugar is dissolved.
Next, allow the berries to simmer for about 10 minutes. Stir occasionally.
When the simmering mixture starts to thicken you may add cinnamon, nutmeg, nuts, raisins, etc. After 10 minutes, remove the pan from the heat. Allow the sauce to cool at room temperature. It will thicken as it cools.
