Thanksgiving Cranberry Sauce

24 Nov

Happy (Turkey Day) Thanksgiving!

I know it’s a little late in the game to be posting a Thanksgiving recipe, since most of you are probably spending time with friends, family, and massive amounts of food resulting from weeks of pre-planning and not scouring the internet for last minute recipes…but this cranberry sauce is fairly holiday universal.  I’ll be smothering my turkey with it tonight, but I can see baking it into muffins, globbing it on oatmeal, or even cooking some up for Christmas dinner.  It’s festive!

I’d love to stay and chat, but I have thanks to be giving, and turkey to be getting ready for!  More on that later.

Super Simple Cranberry Sauce


* 1 bag (12 oz.) fresh cranberries
* 3/4-1 Cup granulated sugar
* 1 Cup Water
* 1/4 Cup fresh squeezed orange juice
* Zest from 1 Orange


Add all ingredients into a sauce pan and heat to a boil, stirring occasionally.
Once boiling, turn down the heat to allow cranberries to simmer and pop. Continue simmering for about 10 minutes.

Allow to cool in the pan for about 20 minutes before transferring into a jar or pretty dish. Eat as is, or refrigerate.

Have a great time with loved ones!
